Level of Unionization

In 2012, the union membership rate—the percent of wage and salary workers who were members of a union—was 5.7 percent, slightly up from 5.2 percent a year earlier, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. The union membership rate for the State of Texas peaked in 1993, when it averaged 7.5 percent, and was at its lowest in 2008 at 4.5 percent. Nationally, union members accounted for 11.3 percent of employed wage and salary workers, down from 11.8 percent in 2011. Since 1989, when comparable state data became available, Texas union membership rates have never exceeded the U.S. average.

 Industry and Occupation of Union Members

Texas had 599,000 wage and salary workers who were union members in 2012. Additionally, another 122,000 workers in the state were represented by a union on their main job or covered by an employee association or contract while not being union members themselves. Nationwide, 14.4 million wage and salary workers were union members in 2012, and 1.6 million wage and salary workers were not affiliated with a union but had jobs covered by a union contract.

Among occupational groups, education, training, and library occupations (35.4 percent) and protective service occupations (34.8 percent) had the highest unionization rates in 2009. Agriculture and related industries (1.4 percent) and financial activities (1.9 percent) had the lowest unionization rates.

As a whole, the State of Texas is ranked 47th out of 50 states for workers covered by a union. A sample labor union membership ranking of the Western United States by the U.S. Census Bureau ranks is as follows:

1 Data refer to members of a labor union or an employee association similar to a union.
2 Data refer to both union members and workers who report no union affiliation but whose jobs are covered by a union or an employee association contract.
NOTE: Data refer to the sole or principal job of full- and part-time wage and salary workers. All self-employed workers are excluded, both those with incorporated businesses as well as those with unincorporated businesses. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data.
Demographic Characteristics of Union Members

The union membership rate was higher for men (12.0 percent) than for women (10.5 percent) in 2012. The gap between their rates has narrowed considerably since 1983, when the rate for men was 10.1 percentage points higher than the rate for women.

Union Representation

In 2012, 15.9 million wage and salary workers were represented by a union. This group includes both union members (14.4 million) and workers who report no union affiliation but whose jobs are covered by a union contract (1.6 million). Private-sector employees comprised about half (814,000) of the 1.6 million workers who were covered by a union contract, but not members of a union.

Earnings

In 2012, among full-time wage and salary workers, union members had median usual weekly earnings of $943, while those who were not represented by unions had median weekly earnings of $742. In addition to coverage by a collective bargaining agreement, the difference reflects a variety of influences including variations in the distributions of union members and nonunion employees by occupation, industry, firm size, or geographic region.

Union Membership by State

In 2012, 31 states and the District of Columbia had union membership rates below that of the U.S. average, 11.3 percent, while 19 states had higher rates. All states in the Middle Atlantic and Pacific divisions reported union membership rates above the national average, and all states in the East South Central and West South Central divisions had rates below it. Union membership rates declined over the year in 34 states, rose in 14 states and the District of Columbia, and remained unchanged in 2 states.

State union membership levels depend on both the employment level and union membership rate. Texas (the second largest state in terms of the number of wage and salary workers) had one-third as many union members as New York, despite having 2.7 million more wage and salary employees.
