Growing Union Power—A Subject Revisited



In 1966, when this article was published, special interest groups argued that labor unions were increasing in monopolistic power and that their influence should be curbed by anti-union legislation. Here the author argues that if unions were exerting too much influence, then both corporate profits and market prices would be affected, union membership would be increasing, and strike activity would be on the rise. The author concludes that the evidence does not paint a picture of unchecked growth of union power.
