Module 7: Discussion Forum
As mentioned throughout the course, unions in the private sector have declined, yet unions in the public sector have risen dramatically. Given this dramatic change in unionization, assess and debate the following. Answer the following questions using the question and answer (Q&A) format; in other words, include the original question along with your response so that it is clear which of the questions you are addressing.
- What does research suggest are the reasons for the changing composition of union membership in relation to the public and private sector?
- What are the lessons that the private sector can adopt from the public sector in relation to union growth?
- Does research suggest that the growth in public sector unionization will continue? Why or why not?
Cite at least one peer-reviewed/scholarly reference inside the discussion question using the CSU-Global Library or other professional and scholarly source. Provide the full citation at the end of your response in APA format.
