Chapter 3 provides an analysis of voter turnout by black union members. In this chapter, high union participatory trends become quite apparent—particularly due to the SSEU’s political history and union leadership in New York City politics. In addition to evaluating black union member participatory trends, this chapter assesses and compares the overall participatory tendencies of black groups using national data sources. Participation rates of blacks are also compared to those of nonblack union members within the original SSEU Survey as well as with nonblack populations from national data sets. Utilizing multiple data sources both illuminates the extensive variation that exists in participation rates at the local and national levels and highlights the differences between voter turnout rates among union members and across the larger US population.
