Popis The objective of this study is to answer following research question: ‘What are the main differences in labor relations outcomes between unionized and non-unionized companies among SMEs in the metal industry in the Czech Republic?’ We base our answer to this question on the findings from qualitative interviews and quantitative questionnaires. Our expectation is that differences will be identified in working conditions, and employer strategies are examined. We find the importance of collective bargaining at the organisational level. The difference in coverage of collective contracts does not have quite as high an impact on labor market segmentation and coordination strategy. We can confirm that collective contracts provide some privileges and benefits, but the absence of these contracts is not the single determining factor of the labor market.
