See why NJ union membership is dropping

February 22, 2016

New Jersey’s union membership rate dipped below 16 percent in 2015, its lowest level in at least 15 years, according to a study released Monday by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The figures are a sign that nonunion jobs are replacing union jobs that have been lost with the closing of Atlantic City casinos, observers said.

“That would explain a lot of it,” said Carl Van Horn, director of the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University.
