Union membership: stable, but not growing
FT article here (you’ll need to register) which reports on the latest LFS membership stats which show a slight decline in union density. The report comes on the back of figures released recently by both the TUC and the Certification Officer which flagged small increases in membership.
It looks basically like union membership is again stable this year – positive in that this represents nearly a decade of stable(ish) union membership; not so positive in that density, particularly in the private sector continues to decline.
Any thought on all this? What more can unions do to grow? Answers in the comments section please. And is this the first time the FT has ever carried a quote encouraging people to join a union ;-)
