Wage Collective Bargaining and Employee Voluntary Quits: A Romanian Empirical Analysis

In this paper, we analyze Hirschman's "voice-exit" theory on the Romanian labour market. In other words, we study the relationship between wage collective bargaining and employee voluntary departures. We assess a kernel matching estimator on a recent Romanian survey of 783 firms. We highlight that, in Romania, before the integration to the European Union, wage collective bargaining implies a weakly significant increase in the probability of experiencing voluntary separations. This result is contrary to the relationship found in empirical studies implemented on developed countries.
