The future of the left since 1884. David Coats disagrees.

The future of the left since 1884. He shows that the unions remain the masters of their own fate but must respond to the challenges of the new ‘hourglass economy’-with more jobs at the top and bottom end of the labour market and a hollowing out in the middle. There are reasons for optimism about union renewal. uk or send a cheque payable to The Fabian Society to 11 Dartmouth Street, London, SW1H 9BN.

In book: The Globalizations of Organized Labour, p. 49-157. Cite this publication. We have been able to carefully dissect the political community that organized labour constitutes, and to explore the complex interplay of relationships - internal and external - and characteristics that bind this sprawling transnational network. We have also been able to isolate structural imperatives and note the ways in which they have impacted on labour over time. Do you want to read the rest of this chapter? Request full-text.

Union membership must start growing again if organized labor is to wield the clout it enjoyed in the early . Unions are conspicuously less confrontational than they once were

Union membership must start growing again if organized labor is to wield the clout it enjoyed in the early post-war period. By international standards, union membership in the United States is low, and it continues to shrink. In the mid-1950s about 1 worker in 3 on non-farm payrolls was a member of a union – and membership rates were even higher in the private sector. Unions are conspicuously less confrontational than they once were. Labor disputes only rarely result in major strikes, which helps explain the news media attention lavished on the UPS dispute. In 1970, approximately 30 potential workdays out of every 1,000 were spent in idleness as a result of labor disputes.

For organized labor in the USA, the path away from oblivion must begin with the recognition of the vastly different . Of course there must be massive organizing of the unorganized

For organized labor in the USA, the path away from oblivion must begin with the recognition of the vastly different situation that the working class faces in the early 21st century from what existed even twenty years ago. Time and space do not permit an exhaustive examination of all of these changes. Much has been written about it in various journals and books. Of course there must be massive organizing of the unorganized. But a sole focus demonstrates the same inflexibly that reformers are attempting to root out. In spite of the qualified success of the lse approach, it is still being touted as the panacea to what ails the trade union movement.
