[Autom. eng. transl.] This research concerned a relevant sector of our economic-productive system, that of the construction industry; a sector that presents interesting aspects of change and transformation, alongside elements of marked continuity. The objectives assigned to the research project are part of the fundamental concern of continuously redefining, in the sense of improvement and innovation, the way of being and doing union; starting from the concrete subjects, from the people who belong to it. The results achieved - through an empirical survey carried out in the field at national level on two samples of workers, that of members and that of trade union cadres - offer a fairly broad and detailed cognitive framework of the concrete persons of which the union is constituted, with reference to a series of dimensions that range from the professional profile, to work cultures, to non-professional social relations, to political orientations, to the trade union role, to questions of protection and representation, to organizational functioning, to internal democracy.
