UWUA Women’s Caucus Chair Encourages Working Women To Take Survey
Mobilizing women begins with understanding their true priorities and challenges, and providing opportunities for them to Speak Up! We encourage all women, union and non-union, to take the National Survey of Working Women.
Let your voices be heard! Your lives matter! Your opinions matter! Your struggles matter!

UWUA Women’s Caucus
Working Women’s Survey
The National Survey of Working Women is an opportunity for advocates and the media to understand the challenges working women face, whether it’s on the job, balancing work and family, or leading in our communities. Tell us what stands between you and prosperity, and how we can change the rules together to create a better life for all workers.
Speak Up Together! The results from the survey will be published in a written report and distributed nationally through media outlets, labor unions, and advocates. Through these networks, your thoughts and words will help inform the debate on what women want and bring the voices of real working women to the table.
We appreciate your time! This survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.
Your responses will be anonymous. Once you have completed the survey, you will be directed to a separate page on a secure website where you can choose to give your contact information so we can share additional information about the issues that matter to you. But even if you decide to share contact information, the final survey report will not include any identifying information.
Shuler: Woman Workers ‘Need To Make Our Voices Heard’:
AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler – the highest-ranking woman in organized labor – said on Tuesday the federation is rolling out a new survey of woman workers, union and non-union, and work and life issues and launching new organizing of those workers, especially women of color.

The survey runs online through Dec. 4 and the data will be published next March, during Women’s History Month. Discrimination, Shuler said, “is experienced by every woman who takes home a smaller paycheck than her male counterpart for doing the same job. It is felt by every mother who is denied a promotion because she wants to balance work and family. It hangs like a dark cloud over every victim of workplace harassment, discrimination and violence.”
