Abstract: 
We analyze the effects of increased immigration of foreign workers on the unionization rates of native workers in Austrian firms over the period 2002-2012. Our results suggest that lower union density of natives' in firms with more foreign workers is driven not by natives leaving unions, but by the different composition of turnover depending on the share of foreigners in the firm.
