Union Membership In Private Sector Declines To Below 7%

On Jan. 27, 2012, the BLS released its annual set of statistics on unions. For those of us supportive of unions the news continues to not be good. Overall union membership declined to 11.8% from 11.9%. Public sector union membership is at 37% and private sector union membership is down to 6.9%. Among States, New York continues to have the highest union membership rate (24.1%) and North Carolina again had the lowest (2.9%). 7.6 million workers belong to unions in the public sector as opposed to 7.2 million in the private sector.
