The purpose of this paper is to focus on the role of unions for job flow rates.
The author uses a longitudinal data set emphasizing the importance of the time dimension.
Using the fixed effects estimator, the author finds that unions decrease the job separation rate and the job finding rate.
The findings support that the implications of the insider-outsider model by Lindbeck and Snower (1986): unions are beneficial for insiders but harm outsiders.
