Subj: New York Carpenters Value Your Input
On behalf of several groups representing carpenters in the New York City area we urge you to take our survey so that we can better represent your interests and better fight for you. Our survey is free and will only take a few minutes of your time.
Our survey is hosted on Google and has no pop-ups or other gimmicks. We genuinely want to know where you and your people stand on the recent issues between the Carpenters and the AFL-CIO.
Please note that you can take the survey anonymously and only fill out those parts which you want to.
