Student post:

The Industrial Revolution brought about the advance of labor unions to organize groups of similar trade workers to protect their interests and rights. The number of unions in public and private sectors increased, peaking in the 1940s and 1950s, with membership hovering around 35 percent of workers belonging to unions (Weiss, 2020). Since then, unionization rates have fallen due to a shift from manufacturing jobs to service jobs and states passing right-to-work laws (Weiss, 2020). Today, public sector workers are unionized at 34.8 percent, but private-sector workers unionization is only at 6.3 % (BLS, 2021). The majority of the public sector worker unions are associated with teachers, firefighters, and police. Opponents of unions and collective bargaining rights believe they strain state budgets, so right-to-work laws should be passed (Frandsen, 2016). Proponents of unions and their collective bargaining rights believe that revoking these rights will result in worse pay and benefits and more insufficient quantity and quality of fire, police, and public education services (Frandsen, 2016). Each state differs when it comes to collective bargaining laws. Some states have none, while others permit bargaining but do not require it, while others mandate the duty to bargain (Frandsen, 2016).

In these states where collective bargaining rights are mandated, union membership within these three groups remains at the highest percentages; however, some disparities in pay and working hours between them still exist between them (Frandsen, 2016). For teachers, collective bargaining has moderately reduced their working hours and class sizes but has had minimal effects on their hourly wages (Frandsen, 2016). For firefighters, collective bargaining has not reduced their working hours but resulted in substantially higher hourly wages (Frandsen, 2016). Lastly, collective bargaining has significantly reduced their working hours for police but resulted in only modest increases in their wages (Frandsen, 2016). Occupational mobility is blamed for the differing results. Police officers and firefighters are more apt to relocate to different counties or states for employment while teachers were not (Frandsen, 2016).

States with mandated duty-to-bargain laws realize higher membership rates in unions among these three public employee groups; however, resulting in pay and benefits still have mixed results.
