Labor Notes #472
Take this self-assessment to get a snapshot of how your union’s current practices stack up and where you're vulnerable.
What if you’re caught in a union that's not doing a good job?

It’s not easy, but it’s also not a distraction; it’s the core work of the union. The results will not only boost membership, but also get more members engaged and help us win on issues. Here is a short exercise you can try in your next union meeting.
