City of Portland Professional Workers Union (CPPW) will fight for the issues that matter most to the bargaining unit. Take the CPPW Issue Survey to share your priorities.
The future of our work is in our hands. By taking this survey, you’ll help decide what things to push for. What do you care about? What affects you, your family, and your work? Based on survey results, we’ll develop proposals that reflect our membership’s priorities and needs.
This survey should take 5-10 minutes.
The union commits to protecting your information. We will not share anyone’s information outside of the union.
Even if you plan on voting no, take the survey anyways because we’d still like to know your priorities and what workplace issues matter to you.
