This paper studies the relation between the wage and amenity components of firm compensation under collective bargaining. To estimate the value of amenities, I decompose revealed preference measures of the value of employment at an establishment into corresponding wage premiums and CBA clauses. One of the key findings is that higher paying establishments offer better amenities but there is some evidence of compensating differentials in low rent sectors.
