From the summary:
Jobs lost during the recession have resulted in reduced unionization rates in the U.S., California, and Los Angeles. Despite increasing unionization throughout the first 18 months of the recession, the upward trend in unionization rates that began three years ago, has come to an end. Unionization rates in all three geographic areas have returned to around 2007-2008 levels (in 12.1% in the U.S., 17.6% in California, and 16.5% in Los Angeles).
