Over the past four years membership has grown by approximately 22% percent. The majority of our growth can be attributed to new organization in the Industrial-Allied and Transportation industries. Due to downsizing within some of our core industries Transportation now comprises the largest segment of USWU’s membership. Additional information on membership and industries can be found on the attached graphs.
USWU also is unique in that we aggressively organize all workers -- including immigrants and minorities. Unfortunately this group is often disenfranchised, especially within the building trades. This group of workers has often been excluded from the benefits of unionization by the traditional building trades unions and USWU’s policy of inclusivity enables this population to enjoy the protections offered by working under a collective bargaining agreement.
