This paper tests the charge by some observers that one reason for the decline in unions' share of private sector employment has been a decline in their commitment to growth. The author presents several measures of the organizing expenditures of 27 national unions, representing about one-half of all union members in this country, over the 1953-77 period. These data show that organizing expenditures rose significantly over that period, whether measured in current or constant dollars, although they declined slightly as a proportion of total union expenditures.
