This paper presents a multi-sector general oligopolistic equilibrium trade model. We investigate how a country’s labor union structure affects a mobile firm’s location decision. We propose a model in which there is international trade and firm mobility between a partial unionized country and a nonunionized country. When the proportion of unionized sectors is low, the welfares of the two countries are equal; otherwise, the unionized country’s welfare is lower. Compared to the case with no firm mobility, the difference in welfare is larger when the proportion of the unionized sectors is sufficiently large.
