    Default Bucking trend, Wisconsin union membership grows

    Now this is weird to say the least!

    There was a surprise in the Bureau of Labor Statistics report Friday on union membership: Trade unions appear to have gained ground in Wisconsin last year.

    Wisconsin’s union membership rate -- the percentage of wage and salary workers who belong to unions -- rose from 11.25 percent to 12.34 percent, the seventh biggest gain in the nation. This after 2012, when Wisconsin had the third largest decrease in the nation.
    Phil Neuenfeldt, president of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, was at a loss to explain the increase.

    Western Wisconsin AFL-CIO president Bill Brockmiller suggested some unions have shifted some resources back into organizing after focusing on lobbying activity during the Legislature’s 2011 move to rein in public sector unions and the subsequent recall elections.

    Great Story , it does not surprise me at all that union membership is up , the politicians in Wisconsin are using smoke and mirrors to fool the people about how union membership is no good and in decline , let's see what they will say about this
