Abstract

Clues to the functions actually served by a labor union are provided by comparison of other affiliations of active and inactive union members. Available data suggest that causes of union activity may lie in the union-management conflict, as is usually assumed. Activity in a labor union is similar to participation in other types of groups, with the notable exception of the family and kinship.
