Although the models assume that unionised workers can always find employment in a non-unionised sector, the wage rate in that industry (which constitutes the reservation wage of union workers) is exogenously given and hence unaffected by trade liberalisation throughout the analysis. For this reason, this modelling approach does not provide any guidance as to how freer trade affects the interaction between unionised and non-unionised sectors in general equilibrium. Bastos and Kreickemeier (2007) develop a model that seeks to overcome the major shortcomings of this modelling strategy, while preserving its main advantages.

The simple bivariate regression line also fits the data rather well, with differences in turnover explaining approximately 30 per cent of the variation in trade. We conclude that the limited Globalisation and Turnover 23 amount of data available tends to provide further support for our theory linking labour market turnover rates to trade patterns. It is also worth noting that the results reported by Baldwin, Dunne and Haltiwanger (1998) do not seem to be consistent with the theory that changes in trade patterns cause turnover.
