UAW membership on the rise

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Despite Michigan’s new right-to-work laws, the United Auto Workers are noting a membership increase for 2013.

According to the union’s Labor Organization Annual Report filed with the U.S. Department of Labor Monday, the union grew by nearly nine-thousand members in 2013 and now stands at just over 391-thousand. Membership has risen in the U.S. by over 36-thousand since 2009.

Right-to-work laws in Michigan won’t impact UAW workers until the end of their current contracts with the automakers in 2015, and officials don’t think the laws will have a big effect on numbers.
