Hello, my name is Luke Wiley, and I’m an undergraduate at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I am a psychology major, but I want to primarily study issues within the workplace. I am studying the effects of being in a union, particularly on things like stress, burnout, and feelings of financial security. This is a very special and important topic for me because I come from three generations of union members, and I am currently in a union for campus workers at my university. It was my grandmother’s ILGWU sewing factory job that helped get her and her children out of poverty and into the middle class. Labor and especially organized labor is often so underrepresented or misrepresented in research. I would love to be able to help change that. I have been working with IBEW Local 175 to develop the survey, but I would also like to expand it to other unions and locals within the building trades professions. Your Business Manager, Rick Sluder, has allowed me to post this QR code and link https://utk.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6VcYLgoAe8Ej5Qi
and ask for Local 238 members to please participate in this survey. Thank you so much!
