About This Resource
For decades, unions have been experiencing declines in membership. However, many pundits think the trend is about to turn. We are beginning to see grassroots labor organizing taking place across the country. In 2019 Uber and Lyft drivers took to the streets to protest low wages, long hours, poor working conditions, and a lack of benefits. Fast-food workers across the country held a day-long strike for a $15 minimum wage.
Organizations that never had to contend with unions before are seeing their employees vote to organize. Presidential campaigns have unionized as have newsrooms. These are not your typical blue-collar workers organizing, but white-collar workers who see the advantages of collective bargaining.
While the desire to improve a worker’s lot in life is a union constant, this new generation of labor organizers has different goals than those of the past. Their desire is to establish better non-discrimination policies, create formal training and opportunities for advancement, have a share in company profits, and play an active role in company decision making.
