4.1 Provide detailed information on the workforce. How many workers? In which location do they work? What are the demographics of the workforce?

The nonprofit’s website may provide some information on the workforce.
LinkedIn provides some basic information on nonprofits by searching under the “company” tab.
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) maintains a database where you can investigate recent NLRB activity. It is a free site, but you must first register. You can search by company to identify if there has been recent NLRB activity at your firm. Unfortunately, the NLRB website will not tell you if your target company is unionized; it only lists recent NLRB activity.
It is best to contact workers to identify worker issues, but there are some resources available online such as Glassdoor that includes workers comments about their employer. Social media sites such as Facebook may also be useful.
The AFL-CIO maintains the UNICORE database that includes information on corporate facilities, their location and (if they are unionized) information on the union. This database is only available to AFL-CIO affiliates.
