Survey Says

We surveyed real Connecticut public union members. This is what they told us.

When it comes to Union Democracy

A survey was fielded in October 2018 to N=302 public union members, with a margin of error of +/- 5.66%. These are their responses.

  • 3 out of 4 believe that public union members have the right to vote on the union that represents them at the workplace.

  • Yet, less than half are aware of a process called “recertification.”

  • 2 out of 3 would be interested in hearing from a new or different union at the workplace.

  • About half say they would likely keep their current union, but half say they would likely go with a new or different union or forgo union representation altogether.

The question is…why, given all of this support for union democracy among real union members, won’t unions give their members what they want?

It’s time to bring democracy to the union. Give union members the choice they want.
