Results of a study demonstrate that unionization of a firm has an influence on its decision to merge with another company. The study relies on merger data gathered from Compustat which are combined with firm-specific union data collected from a variety of sources. The research uses an econometric matching model to isolate the impacts of unionization on the probability that the firms will enter into a merger. Results show that unionization raises the probability that a firm will participate in the acquisition market. Findings also prove that firms with the same union statuses are more likely to merge with one another than those that are not. This does not support the wealth-transfer hypothesis of unions' influence on mergers.
