A case study of the effects of unions on the residential construction industry by Allen B. Mandelstamm, published in the Industrial and Labor Relations Review, showed that union contractors could complete their work in less time with lower material costs than their non-union competitors, resulting in consistently lower bids for the same scope of work.
In today’s highly competitive world, making a decision about a union vs. a non-union worker should be based on key industry issues impacting the quality of your finished product. Union workers are better prepared to deal with the many issues that may arise during the course of a project and are properly trained to negotiate situations and key decisions impacting their work.
