"Labor Unions and Workplace Safety," co-authored by Associate Professor of Economics Perry Singleton, Ling Li '17 M.A. (Econ)/'18 Ph.D. (Econ), and Shawn Rohlin '06 M.A. (Econ)/'09 Ph.D. (Econ), was published in the ILR Review. The study findings indicate that unionization had no detectable effect on accident case rates at the mean, but shifted downward the case-rate distribution below 2 cases per 100 full-time equivalent workers annually. The downward shift is most evident among larger bargaining units and manufacturing establishments. 10/02/20
