The article provides information on various research in progress about labor organizations. The research projects include one by Charles O'Reilly on the growing trend in union decertification elections and another by John Freeman on the merger among national labor unions. The study by Freeman utilized a data set that will include several computer card images. However, Samuel Haber is completing his study on the history of the U.S. professions. The main argument of his research is that the essential characteristic of a profession has been the authority rather than the monopoly position that it sometimes acquired.
