    Default The 2013 Union Numbers Are In

    Union membership remained stagnant in 2013 at 11.3 percent of American workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    You could consider no change as good news for the labor movement, considering the decline in union membership over the past 30 years. In 1983, more than 20 percent of American workers belonged to unions
    .

    Highly unionized occupations included teachers, police officers and firefighters. In the private sector, union members were most common in utilities, transportation and warehousing, telecommunications, and construction.
    New York had the highest union membership rate of any state at 24.4 percent, and North Carolina had the lowest at 3 percent.

    Union members made more money than non-union workers: median weekly earnings of $950 compared with $750.

    Something needs to be done out here in the southwest. I know we have many unions here but I don't think the numbers or attitude is strong.

    Well, we have more than I thought.

    New Mexico union membership declines slightly
    New Mexico’s rate of union membership fell in 2013, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said Friday.

    According to the BLS, 46,000, or 6.2 percent of the state’s 751,000 wage and salary workers, were union members in 2013. That was down from 50,000 union members in 2012 and a 6.5 percent unionization rate.
    This surprised me. Never would have pictured Hawaii as being a high union state.

    Fifteen states had lower union membership rates than New Mexico, with the highest being New York at 24.4 percent. Alaska was second at 23.1 percent, and Hawaii was third at 22.1 percent.
