Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the modeling process, which is then used to suggest a means of developing a typology of metamodels in collective bargaining. The typology helps to categorize existing models and it pinpoints gaps which indicate that new forms of analysis may be needed. The paper is epistemological in nature and deals with conceptual systems across several levels of abstraction. Finally, strengths and weaknesses of the current major categories of bargaining theory are presented. The paper focuses on the human activity at the group level and deals with the decider subsystem.
