Job losses in the manufacturing sector have led to a slide in unionmembership over the past year, according to research by both the Government andthe TUC. Government figures on trade union trends by Labour Force Survey (LFS) showthere are 44,000 fewer union members in manufacturing than a year ago. There has been growth in members in sectors such as business services,public administration and retail, but this does not outweigh the decline inmanufacturing, finance and mining. The LFS figures, which include unions and staff associations that are notmembers of the TUC, show overall union membership is down by 30,000 to7,550,000 – a fall of 0.4 per cent. Separate TUC figures also find union membership has dropped overall by37,000 to 6,685,353 – a fall of 0.5 per cent. TUC general secretary John Monks, claimed the dip in membership was a blipand the overall analysis of membership trends show that union membership hasstabilised over the last four years after falling steadily during the 1980s andearly ’90s. He said: “These small falls are disappointing, but we were carefulnever to exaggerate the small increases in previous years, and the picture isnow one of stability after 20 years of decline. The challenge remains to unionsto use that base to recruit and organise.” last_img read more
