A majority of Americans say they would join a union, with 77 percent of those 18–34 voicing their approval for unions. Many are choosing OPEIU.
Gallup polling released in September shows Americans’ approval of labor unions is at its highest point since 1965, with 68 percent reporting a favorable view of organized labor. The survey, conducted in mid-August, also showed a staggering 77 percent of those age 18–34 have a favorable opinion, echoing the findings of surveys conducted earlier this year by Pew suggesting most Americans, especially younger ones, would vote to join a union if given the opportunity.
Many are choosing to organize with OPEIU, looking to improve their working conditions, give voice to marginalized workers and address issues of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
