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.
