Survey and Research Committee
The Survey and Research Committee consists of three members appointed by the General Executive Board. The purpose of the research committee is to develop analyses of organizing strategies and tactics and support local campaigns in their research needs.
Every two years the Survey and Research Committee publishes the results of a union wide survey on a topic related to organizing. The report both analyzes the results of the survey and makes recommendations based on its findings. Future topics of the survey might include: corridor campaigns, contract shops, solidarity unionism, understanding of what it means to be a member of the union, branch structure and operations.
The Survey and Research Committee assists in campaign research as appropriate. However, committee members are not expected to perform campaign research themselves. Rather they facilitate it by identifying and maintaining a list of members of the union willing to do campaign research. Organizers are encouraged to utilize the SRC for assistance in meeting the criteria for funding.
