From the abstract:
An important issue in assessing the potential benefits of information technology (IT) as a tool for increasing labor’s effectiveness is union members’ use of IT. Using 2003 Current Population Survey data, we examine the union members’ IT and Internet usage at home and work. We find that union members are more intense users of IT at work than nonunionized employees and that high-intensity IT users constitute about one-third of the union sample.
