BACKGROUNDER: Polling Results on Union Salting and Union Elections
October 25, 2023 // Between July 24-26, 2023, Institute for the American Worker commissioned the bipartisan research firm Big Village to conduct an online omnibus survey of a demographically representative U.S. sample of 1,010 adults 18 years of age and older. The polling questions gauge the public’s opinion on union organizing efforts involving “salts,” which are paid union organizers who apply for jobs at a workplace to organize an employer. Additionally, the poll asked if respondents felt unions should need a minimum threshold of votes before representing employees.
