Union­ism fades

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Career One -

THE union is be­com­ing scarcer at the work­place. A Ta­lent2 sur­vey of 2000 peo­ple notes that about 58 per cent of the re­spon­dents do not have a union rep­re­sen­ta­tive in their work­place.

‘‘ The pub­lic ser­vice sec­tor seems fairly well-rep­re­sented by the union move­ment, with 81.2 per cent of re­spon­dents say­ing they have a union in their work­place,’’ says Craig Sneesby of Ta­lent2. ‘‘ About 50 per cent of those who work in the con­struc­tion in­dus­try have a union in their work­place, yet only 4.7 per cent are ac­tu­ally mem­bers.’’
