Squeaking past the deadline

Thanks to a last-minute push by Steve Hulett with the assistance of E-Board members and shop stewards, the percentage of returned forms has gone past last year's 22.9% tally just as we reach the official (but not final) deadline for the wage survey questionnaires. As of today we have reached 23.2% returns.

On Monday I will begin the tally of the survey results, which typically takes anywhere from a week-and-a-half to two weeks. Until the tally is complete, any returned surveys will be added to the mix, so the final total will probably be a little higher. So, it's not too late to download the survey and mail or fax it in (ignore the July 22 deadline), or scan it and send it to me in an e-mail. Please do so in the next few days.

We have found that incomplete tallies can be confusing and deceptive given the small sampling, so we will not post or publicize any survey results until the tally is completed and chedcked. When the survey results are ready they will be posted on this blog, on our website, the e-mail list and in the Peg-Board.

On behalf of the Guild, thank you to everyone who filled out a questionnaire and helped propagate them. I hope we can continue to work to make the wage survey a comprehensive and useful tool for ourselves and our careers.
