The National Employee Freedom Week Coalition conducted a series of scientific surveys to ascertain just how many of the nation’s union households would opt out of union membership if they could do so without losing their job or facing any other penalty.
The results were surprising: Nationally, 33 percent of respondents indicated that they would opt out of union membership. State results also showed that a significant portion of those in union households want to opt out of union membership. Unless noted otherwise, each survey is based on 500-502 respondents.
