New York (CNN Business) The biggest victory for US unions since Labor Day last year wasn’t at the negotiating table, on the picket line or in organizing a vote.

Younger workers are even bigger backers of unions, with 77% of those 34 and younger having a positive view.

The number of union members actually fell slightly in 2020, the most recent year for which data is available.

The picture is somewhat better in the public sector, where roughly one-of-three government workers, such as teachers, police or fire fighters, are members of a union.

The AFL-CIO, which surveyed union members as opposed to voters from union households, estimates that 37% voted for Trump in each of the last two elections.
