Abstract: 
This paper examines if workplace and co-worker union status affect employee wellbeing. In contrast to the literature focusing on links between one's own membership status and wellbeing, we focus principally on non-union employees. We find that being in a union workplace and having union co-workers affect the job satisfaction of non-union employees negatively. No such a link is found with respect to job-related anxiety.
