Oregon union membership rate declines, report says

SAN FRANCISCO - Union members accounted for 13.9 percent of wage and salary workers in Oregon last year, a drop from the 2017 rate of 14.9 percent but still the 11th-highest rate in the nation, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday.

Assistant Commissioner for Regional Operations Richard Holden noted that the union membership rate for Oregon was at its peak in 1989, when it averaged 21.6 percent, and at its low point in 2016 at 13.5 percent. (See chart 1 and table A.)

Nationwide, union members accounted for 10.5 percent of employed wage and salary workers in 2018, down 0.2 percentage point from the 2017 rate.

Since 1989, when comparable state data became available, union membership rates in Oregon have been above the U.S. average.
