SHOW ME THE RECORDS: Union membership in Missouri
Monday, April 18, 2011 | 12:01 a.m. CDT
Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.
For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to http://columbiamissourian.com/records.
The records: The data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics details union membership in Missouri.
Why you’d want them: Across the nation, the labor landscape has become rocky after collective bargaining and issues over public union rights emerged on a state-by-state basis. These graphs show the population of unions across the nation and compare them with Missouri’s union force.
Where you get the records: http://www.bls.gov/ro7/mounion.htm
How much it will cost: The information is free.
