Union Membership and Perceived Job Insecurity: 30 Years of Evidence from the American General social Survey

Pierre Brochu () and Louis-Philippe Morin ()

No 1106E, Working Papers from University of Ottawa, Department of Economics

Abstract: Using the Amercian General Social Survey, we explore the link between union membership and perceived job insecurity. This finding is mainly atributed to the primary and secondary sectors and for recessionary periods. Instrumental-variables estimation and the use of attitudinal proxy variables suggest that the positive correlation union membership and perceived job insecurity is not due to self-selection.
