Unions and Job Satisfaction: An Alternative View.
Pfeffer, Jeffrey; Davis-Blake, Alison
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v17 n3 p259-83 Aug 1990
The dominant theoretical perspective suggests that unions reduce job satisfaction by making workers more critical of the workplace and more willing to complain. However, unions reduce wage inequality and increase worker control and commitment. A survey of 978 workers shows that unionization has a positive effect on job satisfaction. (JOW)
