Departing from the dominant focus on membership size, we argue that unions’ influence on national law making is based to an important degree on their local organization. We delineate the novel hypothesis that the horizontal concentration of union members within electoral districts matters. To test it, we draw on administrative records and map the membership size and concentration of local unions to districts of the US House of Representatives, 2003–12. We find that, controlling for membership size, representatives from districts with less concentrated unions have more liberal voting records than their peers. This concentration effect survives numerous district controls and relaxing OLS assumptions. While surprising for several theoretical perspectives, it is consistent with theories based on social incentives. These results have implications for our broader understanding of political representation and the role of groups in democratic politics.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Käppner, Konstantin</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Local Union Organization and Law Making in the US Congress</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dc:creator>Stegmueller, Daniel</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Becher, Michael</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Käppner, Konstantin</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-05-09T09:52:59Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-05-09T09:52:59Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Becher, Michael</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2018-04</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
