Union Membership in Construction

Unions aim to create more work opportunities, obtain fair wages and benefits, and protect the safety and health among construction workers. This dashboard summarizes trends of union membership in construction for wage-and-salary workers.

Union membership data is from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Current Population Survey (CPS), downloaded through IPUMS, with calculations by the CPWR Data Center. The dashboard includes membership statistics by state, year, worker characteristics, and occupation.

Dashboard instructions and information on filters, charts, and definitions are included in the information icon Data Dashboard information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.

You can download the data as a spreadsheet. Each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.

The dashboard will be updated annually when new data are available, with the next update scheduled for Spring 2024. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
