According to Bureau of Labor statistics, union membership is declining.

Here is (in my opinion) why union membership is declining:

Unionized companies typically base promotions and raises off seniority and not merit. Who wants to work for an employer who ignores your contributions and only promotes based off seniority?

Collective bargaining means one contract covers everyone. Such contracts do not reflect individual contributions. A person who is a top quality worker will get passed over for a promotion simply because they have not been at the company as long as another person who may not be performing top quality work.

Also, Union leaders are money hungry and greedy; union executives pull in six figure salaries and made 10 times more than the average salary.
