In the article Bailey and Peetz investigate challenge Australian Union in the recent times and there has been a recent years, there has been a sharp decline in the unionism membership. In the article, the author has identifies the challenges such as Australian union movements, that has been built since three decades (it started in early 1990s). The author has provided an in-depth discussion over the renewal strategies of the union membership. For the purpose of the research, the author has used the method of researching one article and analyzed it with the union membership engagement and and identifying success or failures. The Australian unions need to optimize and utilize the strategies that would be engaging and have set plans at an external level (like in the political arena), to have the defined actions and to have the ideas and shaping values or ideologies.

In Australia, the unions are the force that can have an altering course of the action which can identify the union’s embeddedness and can support networks. The same goes for the internal level (actions that can influence and work to the extent that power can vest to central membership. It is important to include a policy that can control and regulate the coordinated or dispersed action. Union engagement when researched in the mix of the industry, can provide occupational ideas and it can be used in the enterprise-based structures. The inclusion of the union’s participation and course of development can help to deploy resources.

Trade union membership has varied in the recent times, as they have aggregated in the numbers and the density has increased, but due to the higher union ship and demanding rights, it has become a burden to the economy. The same trend has not been observed in the developed country, where the unionship has declined due to the advancement stages in economy. The decline is purely due to the multifactorial, and it involves having a hostile environment to form unionism. Unionism involves active employers and the state, but with too much power to the unionism can lead to workplace difficulties, can lead to a negative impact on an economy and over the structural changes (Gilfillan, 2018). The unionism has also shown a declining trend in the membership with the declining different age groups and younger workers not being part of such groups. The reach also indicates the unions should include the different genders, different age groups and also work progressively to improve the recruitment and for the better organization identity
