2014 State of the Unions Report

Each year, The Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) tracks the level and significance of California unionization in its annual State of the Unions report. In addition to documenting trends in unionization in Los Angeles, California, and The United States, this report adds a discussion of unions in Greater San Francisco. Greater San Francisco is not only the state’s wealthiest region, it along with Los Angeles, is one of the most unequal in the country. This report uses union data as a departure point for a discussion of how unions do and do not counteract income inequality.
