The American Labour Movement and the Resurgence in Union Organizing

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] By 1999, the combination of organizing victories and employment expansion in unionized industries resulted in a net gain of 265,000 in union membership, the first such gain in more than twenty years (AFL-CIO, 2000). The great American decline in union organizing may have finally bottomed out. Yet, in order to reverse the decline in organizing and regain their power at the bargaining table and in the broader community, American unions are going to have to organize millions, not hundreds of thousands, of workers each year. We can only hope that other nations learn both from our mistakes and our belated attempts at revitalization, so that they can stem their own decline before it reaches the same depths as in the USA.
