TRADE UNIONS LOSE
HEAVILY IN MEMBERS
Figures Given Following Survey of
Building Conditions Through
out the Country.
The supply of organized labor in
the building crafts in the United
States is apparently not being sus
tained. according to official reports
of the average paid-up membership
'ln the seventeen building trades
unions. In the last two years there
has been a loss of nearly 60.000 mem
bers in the.ve trade unions or 7 per
cent, while a loss of more than 4,000
members has been reported during
the past year. These statistics, com
piled by S. W. Straus & Co., in con
nection with a survey being made of
national building conditions, and
made public, show the decline of
membership in the building craft
tabor officials explain that the
membership of the various unions at
the present time is probably consid
erably larger in a number of in
stances, as per capita tax was only
paid on a minimum membership. It
was pointed out. for example, that
the Carpenters and Joiners - Brother
hood. at the recent convention of the
building trades department of the
American Federation of Labor, held
in Portland, fire., reported a mem
bership of 35<i,000, although on the
basis of per capita taxation on mini
mum membership the union is cred
ited with 315,000 members.
