We are grateful to Paul Nowak and John Wood of the TUC for their helping us obtain data and carrying out the survey of www.unionreps.org.uk. Our discussion of Working America benefited from the Harvard University Labor and Worklife Program Workshop on Working America, Nov 13-14, 2007 and in particular from the presentation by Robert Fox on the organizations on-line activities. Jason Abaluck, Rishi Patel, Morgan Freeman, and David Owen provided excellent research assistance. Peter Cappelli and David Autor gave valuable comments.
