Important information about a Membership Survey

Membership Survey

Sisters and Brothers:

Arising from a motion at the January 21, 2015 Membership Meeting, we have engaged the services of Strategic Research, an independent research company, to conduct a telephone survey of our members. The purpose of this survey is to gather information on how we feel about working conditions with the City of Burnaby.

This is a confidential survey and individual results will not be disclosed. The survey will consist of approximately 20 questions and will take about 10 minutes to do.

We have approximately 2,500 members in our Local Union. To ensure that the survey is as accurate as possible, we will have to get 300 interviews completed.

In the next few days you may receive a call from Strategic Research. We hope that you will look for their call and participate in this very important and confidential survey. The phone number that should show on your call display is: 604-323-2694. In some cases due to network incompatibility the number may not be displayed.

Strategic Research intends to begin the survey on February 23, 2015, and anticipates that it will take about a week to complete.

It’s really important that we get as much participation as we possibly can for this survey because it will provide us with very useful information that we can use for bargaining purposes.

Simon Challenger, President
