  •  The numbers are not good... (4+ / 0-)

    but I wonder what the breakdown looks like. State governments have been shedding employees in huge numbers, some of them surely were union members. I agree that all is not lost, though. SEIU Healthcare in PA is making a big push to organize the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) - I'm on the organizing committee :) We have a huge NLRB complaint with the hearing (finally!) starting on 2/4/13. When the ruling goes with us, look for some good news about increased Union membership in the hopefully not to distant future. Lots of work remains to be done, but we're a persistent bunch with a ton of community and political support, and UPMC is getting a ton of bad press lately.
