Abstract: We investigate the impact of the 2011 industrial relations reform in Greece that made firms with less than 50 employees eligible to participate to firm-level bargaining. Matching administrative contractual data with longitudinal firm-level data we identify firms affected and not affected by the reform. We find that during the first post-reform year, affected firms with less than 50 employees experienced a 4.8 per cent increase in the probability of firm-level contracting and a 12 per cent drop in wage floors relative to not affected firms. We also report estimates regarding the post-reform employment effect of firm-level bargaining.
