We present an efficient bargaining model in which wage share is negatively associated with product market structure and varies positively with union bargaining strength. The model is tested using data from a panel of U.K. manufacturing industries. Instrumental variables estimates corroborate a positive (negative) union bargaining strength (concentration) effect on labour's income share.
