L’article examine le rôle des interactions salariales entre secteur privé et secteur public. Les résultats empiriques sur la période 1995-2015 suggèrent clairement qu’il n’y a pas, dans la formation des salaires belges, un secteur «leader» qui imposerait systématiquement ses hausses de salaire à l’autre secteur. Les interactions salariales sectorielles privé-public sont très fortes, mais au final chaque secteur conserve une large autonomie. Les salaires du secteur privé sont en particulier nettement plus sensibles aux modifications de l’environnement macro-économique (productivité, inflation, chômage), et caractérisés par une tendance négative qu’on peut attribuer à une plus forte modération salariale.

The main objective is to examine the interactions between various sectors in the determination of wages. After a brief description of sectoral specificities in wage setting, the core of the project consists in estimating different wages functions taking into account wage spillovers across macro-sectors (manufacturing industry, finance, other services and public sector). To this end, we use quarterly sectoral data on four countries (Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany) over the period 1995-2014 and we estimate VAR-ECM and other econometric models addressing potential endogeneity problems.

Automatic indexation mechanisms are often criticized for being a key source of inflexibility of actual real wages and thus responsible for a lack of adjustment to in the labour market and for a deterioration of cost-competiveness. The aim of this study is to empirically assess whether this point of view is well founded. Statistical The Statistical and econometric research relates to four countries: two with institutionalized indexation of wages to consumer prices (Luxembourg and Belgium) and two without institutionalized indexation (Germany and France). this comparative econometric study, applied to four countries with or without indexation mechanisms, shows that the presence of institutionalized indexation does not significantly alter the process through which hourly wages are set, by observingas revealed by the long-term relationships or dynamic reactions to an exogenous shock. In other words, whilst differences in wage flexibility exist, their causes may be found elsewhere and not necessarily in automatic indexation mechanisms. Beyond the perimeter of this study, factors for the adjustment or inflexibility of wages might rather be sought in other directions, such as wages upon recruitment, inter-sector flexibility, the variable portion of remuneration, or changes in the composition of the labour force by sector, for example.
