Over the last two months, members across our Union have been participating in our strategic planning process.
They’ve been attending workshops, participating in meetings, and providing feedback through a member survey process.
Since November, we’ve had over 2,400 members, or about 15% of our membership, fill out our strategic planning survey.
The survey has been an opportunity for members to provide input that will shape our Union for the next three years. It asks questions about our Union’s mission and purpose, how best to build unity, improve communication, and increase member involvement.
Many Shop Stewards and other member leaders have been instrumental in distributing the surveys in the field. Their hard work has allowed many of us to contribute our ideas, suggestions, and concerns.
We’re coming to the end of the survey process and are working on compiling the results. If you have any remaining surveys, please return them to your Union Rep or the Local Union office by January 13.
In the coming weeks, we will be sharing the results with you online. The results of the survey will be used to help develop our strategic priorities over the next few years.
In addition to the surveys, we've met with members to engage in a more thorough analysis of our Union. We've discussed our strengths as an organization and talked about where we can improve.
We've surveyed the external landscape to anticipate threats such as the right-to-work threat, and we've discussed opportunities given the current economic and political environment.
Thank you to all of the members who have participated in this process. Your participation will help shape our strategic plan and strengthen our Union for the future.
