AFL-CIO advances in Right to Work state

The number of union members in Arizona has grown. There are 230,000 labor union members in the state, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That is up from 197,000 in 2006. Union members represent 8.8 percent of Arizona's workers. Labor accounts for 16.7 percent of the work force in California, 25.2 percent in New York and 15 percent in Nevada. The Arizona AFL-CIO said the growth shows that unions are gaining ground in Arizona, which is a "right to work" state.
