Abstract:

The possibility exists that a labor union within the military services of the United States could become a reality with the advent of an all- volunteer armed force. The actual probability of such an event being indeterminant at this time, the situation should be closely studied to determine the advantages and disadvantages of military unionization are presented along with the possible limitations on a military union should it become a reality. Two military unions operating with some degree of success in West Germany and Norway, respectively, are analyzed. Limitations common to both the Norwegian and West German unions are discussed to determine their possible applicability to the armed forces of the United States.
