The U.S. labor movement has been taking backward strides for several decades. But a new U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report says 12.1% of U.S. workers were union members last year, up from 12.0% in 2006. That’s the first year-to-year increase in at least 25 years. The biggest increase: service-sector jobs.
Private employers recorded 7.5% union membership, compared with 35.9% in public-sector jobs.
