The Department of Labor has released its annual averages for unionization in the United States.
The raw number of private sector union members rose slightly, but declined (almost imperceptibly) as a share of the total number of U.S. workers. In government, unions shrank in absolute terms, but grew as a percentage of a shrinking public sector workforce.
Here is some of the data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (full table here).

Also worthy of note: The number of non-union workers represented by unions declined by about 50,000, to 1.53 million.
