We analyse the effects of the unionisation structure on the incentive for outward foreign direct investment (FDI) and on union utility. The incentive for outward FDI is higher under a centralised union than under decentralised unions, irrespective of the number of firms in the industry. If the number of firms undertaking FDI is higher under a centralised union than under decentralised unions, wages and the union utility can be higher under the latter unionisation structure, depending on the competitiveness of the industry. There may not be a conflict of interest between domestic labour union and domestic industry about the unionisation structure.
