Survey Says…. Majority of Professionals Support Unionization at Work

Late last year the Department for Professional Employees (DPE) AFL-CIO sponsored a survey where more than 1,000 professional employees not currently represented by a labor union were interviewed. According to this report, they found that 56 percent of those surveyed approve of having a union at their workplace. The survey also showed that most professionals (61 percent) would support coming together in union to receive better salaries and raises. They also believe that union representation would improve their salaries as well as their health and retirement benefits.
