The workplace is a key site of struggle in our fight for democratic socialism! Our Labor Branch has put together a short survey mapping our members’ — that's you — workplaces and interest in union organizing. This information will be incredibly helpful to strategically plan future organizing efforts. We can also put you in touch with organizers if you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to learn about fighting for a voice in your workplace!
All responses will be kept confidential, to be used only for internal Philly DSA labor organizing. It should take less than 5 minutes to complete.
Please email [email protected] if you have questions about the content of this survey.
