Sisters and Brothers:
I hope to encourage all Sisters of the Florida Labor Movement and Working Women from all sectors to take the National Survey of Working Women.Â The results will assist to guide specific issues and policies of the AFL-CIO in the future.
Itâ€™s been over five years sinceÂ our federation askedÂ working women about their priorities and experiences. With the economy in slow recovery, a new wave of attacks on collective bargaining, and a presidential election on the horizon, working womenâ€™s voices are now more important than ever.
The newÂ National Survey of Working WomenÂ was developed under the guidance of the AFL-CIO Executive Council Committee on Women Workers, key partners and affiliates, and experts throughout the progressive movement. With this tool, we hope to capture a multi-faceted picture of the lives of working women across the country, both union and non-union.
The survey is available atÂ go.aflcio.org/WomensSurvey.
We invite you, your members and your community partners to participate in the survey. We cannot be successful without your help!
