Member Participation Equity Survey
As part of the Member Participation Equity Survey, outlined in the 2014 Annual Action Plan, OSSTF is in the final stage of data collection with an online sample of members.
The Federation has asked the Vector Poll™ to conduct this random sample of members to complete a short, confidential survey.
This information is to advise you that this invitation is being mailed to members last week and will be conducted over the new few weeks.
The survey results will help the Federation leaders better understand the members’ participation in the union and how members feel about Federation services.
OSSTF will receive only a summary of the opinions of members who fill out the survey. No individual’s opinions will be disclosed. The passcode is not linked to a member name when Vector Research counts the opinions.
The Vector Poll™ is a member of the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association (MRIA), the standards setting body for opinion research in Canada. The MRIA website is http://www.mria-arim.ca, where you can see the research industry privacy code.
