Do Unions Make a Difference

The Union difference for workers has been amply documented for many dimensions of employment. Compared to nonunionized workers, especially in comparable jobs, unionized workers make more money, have more access to pensions, receive better health care insurance, and have safer workplaces (Mishel and Walters, 2003; Weil, 1991).

Less well-documented is the Union difference in "family-friendly" workplaces - worplaces that, through policy and practice, promote a healthy and viable balance between work life and home life.
