The macroeconomics effects of various degrees of coordination in wage bargaining are analysed with a special focus on aggregate wage and unemployment levels. The extent of bargaining coordination may affect wage setting both directly and indirectly because it interacts with other factors, such as economic policy and macroeconomic shocks. The last section discusses how the EMU is likely to affect wage bargaining changing and wage setting.

Keywords: aggregate wage; bargaining coordination; economic policy; EMU; macroeconomic shocks; macroeconomics effects; unemployment
