Labor unions in the U.S. represent barely one of every fourteen employees in the private sector.
Labor unions in the U.S. represent barely one of every fourteen employees in the private sector. This abysmal number is representative of a steady, decades-long, downward trend in union membership. But as industry has grown by focusing on global initiatives, unions too have turned to their international brethren to breathe life back into the U.S. labor movement. In Organized Labor's International Strategy To Solve Its Domestic Crisis, FordHarrison partners Herbert Gerson, and Brian Kurtz, examine how two unions – the UAW and SEIU – have leaned on European alliances for growth, and explain why international corporations with U.S. operations should pay attention. The article was published by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) as a Practice Area Briefing and is available on the Indepth Analysis page of FordHarrison's Knowledge Center.
