Selective recruitment in nonunionized sectors (by the TGWU and particularly ASTMS), and the spread of shop stewards ("the most effective recruiting agent") in the TGWU --and in some NUGMW and construction workers' union (UCATT) regions--almost certainly resulted in membership growth without adversely affecting other unions.
Furthermore, the activities of "open" unions like ASTMS and the TGWU disturbed the inter-union status quo and stimulated competitive recruitment, as did more growth-conscious NUGMW leaders.
