Thus, the firm will accept the offer of 105 - £, and no lockout will take place. The example above shows that even if the real situation is the same in the two scenarios - absent an initial wage, the new contract should give a real wage of 100 - the existence of the initial nominal contract wage affects the bargaining outcome. High inflation erodes the real value of the nominal wage given in the 46 Steinar Holden contract, putting workers at a strategic disadvantage. Negative inflation, or low inflation and a firm-specific negative shock, puts firms at a strategic disadvantage.
The discontinuities in labour demand through plant closings in multinationals also have effects on wages in the long run. Evidence from the worker displacement literature shows that after plant closing re-employment often happens at a lower wage and there may be long spells of unemployment (see, for example, Kuhn, 2002). The lower wages can follow from switches of industry or occupation, or the new job may be at a lower rank than the previous one. From the labour union perspective, this creates additional problems.
In theory, monopoly unions set wages, given labour demand, or unions and firms bargain on wages and then firms determine labour demand. In any case, the labour demand elasticity plays an important role here. If capital mobility to foreign countries is not continuous, but lumpy, labour demand changes are abrupt. Typically, parts of plants are not relocated, but rather whole plants or production lines, which creates kinks or jumps in labour demand. There is, however, not much empirical evidence on how elastic job destruction through plant closings is to wage changes.
