This study, using National Labor Relations Board data and American Hospital Association data, reports on the status of union
election activity in the hospital industry for a 65-month period, January 1980-May 1985, and contrasts it with earlier data
for a similar 65-month time period (1974-79). Together these data provide a comprehensive overview of union election activity
in non-Federal, nongovernment hospitals since the passage of the 1974 Nonprofit Hospital Amendments to the Taft-Hartley Act.
The study analyzes union, election, hospital, and environmental characteristics. Comparisons over the two time periods show
that, while union victory rates in hospital elections have remained constant, the total number of elections has declined dramatically
in the hospital industry.
