Unions Explore New Organizing Tactics

August 13, 2013 |  unions-and-union-membership


The Associated Press offers an interesting article on union efforts to move beyond their largely unsuccessful, traditional organizing tactics. The story as reported by the Ft. Wayne Journal Gazette can be found here.

The article quotes AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka saying, “To be blunt, our basic system of workplace representation is failing to meet the needs of America’s workers by every critical measure.” The story notes several union efforts to recruit new dues paying members, including working through local so-called justice or worker centers. A more detailed report on that topic can be found in a recent New York Times article found here.
