There are changes are needed for unions to maintain support from their membership, the community, and the employers. The recommendations I would make to union and management leadership in order to meet the demands of a constantly changing workplace, would be that in order to reach the more professional labor market, unions must remove the blue-collar mentality and appeal to more contemporary workers. Unions must determine how to organize 21st-century industries. In the market today, employees have less job security and compensation remains stagnant. Although many workers would like to unionize, the consequences of unionizing are great. Unions must make strategy changes to succeed in the 21st century, by restructuring how they conduct business, for example. This restructuring means using power they have and increasing power in other areas of business, which requires a proactive strategy and getting in front of the issues that are important to their membership. One of those key issues is creating a global labor movement.
