Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that, on average, union workers receive larger wage increases than those of non-union workers and generally earn higher wages and have greater access to most of the common employer-sponsored benefits as well.

See National Compensation Survey: Employee Benefits in the Unit-ed States, March 2012, bulletin 2773, (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, September 2012), www.bls.gov/ncs/ebs/benefi ts/2012/home.htm. For historical data, see “Employer Costs for Employee Compensation: Historical Listing, March 2004–December 2012” (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, March 2013), ftp://ftp.bls.gov/pub/special.requests/ocwc/ect/ececqrtn.pdf. Historically, union workers have earned more than nonunion workers. See Kay E. Anderson, Philip M Doyle, and Albert E. Schwenk, “Measuring union-nonunion earnings differences,” Monthly Labor Review (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, June 1990); see also Ann C. Foster, “Union-nonunion Wage Differences, 1997,” Compensation and Working Conditions (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Spring 2000); ecs.page.link/eBSs
