  • Local 343 Membership Survey – 5 Chances to Win $50 for providing your feedback! (Early Bird Deadline: August 3, 2018)

    Local 343 is proud to be launching our first-ever comprehensive Membership Survey! The goal of the Survey is to help gain a more comprehensive overview of our membership and the challenges they face in their workplaces, and what they’re looking for from their Union. Once the Survey closes, we will compile the results and assemble them into a report. The tentative date for the release of the report is early 2019. The Survey is broken into two parts: A) Your Workplace and You B) Your Union and You The average time to complete the Survey is approximately 10 minutes. Your confidentiality is important so rest assured that all information will remain anonymous and will be presented in aggregate form. As appreciation for taking the time to complete the Survey, we’re offering 5 prizes of $50 – 2 to be drawn for the Early Bird Draw and 3 for the Final Draw. If you complete the Survey before the Early Bird deadline, you will not only be entered in the Early Bird Draw but as well, the Final Draw! That’s right, complete the Survey before the Early Bird Deadline and you’ll have two chances to win! After you finish completing the Survey, you will be redirected to the Draw Entry form which is hosted on another website, completely separate from the Survey. Early Bird Entry Deadline = Friday, August 3, 2018 Final Entry Deadline = Friday, September 14, 2018 Follow the link here to fill out the Survey: We thank […]
