Union Organizing in the United States

Labor union membership in the private sector has decreased dramatically in the past few decades in the United States. But with the advent of a new union coalition – Change to Win, there has been a renewed emphasis by both the new group and the AFL-CIO to recruit more members. Often these new recruits are in fields that normally weren’t unionized.

The NLRA guarantees the rights of employees to organize and bargain collectively with their employers. The NLRA provides for two primary processes by which a labor union can be certified as the bargaining representative for a company's employees – the card check and the secret-ballot election.
