2023 Survey Responses

By Province

Alberta was the province that recorded the highest number of survey responses from our GPMC I NMC members. This was also consistent with the 2022 survey findings and represents the province with the highest percentage of GPMC | NMC members.

The skilled trades of survey respondents changed slightly from the 2022 GPMC survey, as carpenters had represented the highest percentage of respondents, while pipefitters led the trades in response percentile for 2023.

Although the 2023 survey respondents were extremely familiar with the organization and felt the GPMC I NMC was extremely valuable to members, less than 40% of respondents were able to identify their GPMC/NMC International Representative.

Although members were extremely satisfied with the GPMC | NMC, the 2023 survey found that members wanted more communication. As a result, we have ensured that all newsletters are accessible online, direct communication with stewards has been prioritized and media has been expanded to increase our reach with our members.

After reviewing the communication sources, the GPMC | NMC has revamped their website, created multi-media newsletters, revised print materials, created an active presence on social media and committed to meeting personally with members, signatory employers, unions, and contractors on an ongoing basis to ensure communications work for our members.

The 2023 survey findings indicated that increased visits by GPMC | NMC International Representatives are of paramount importance to members. As a result, we have committed to prioritizing increased job site visits by our international representatives in 2024.
