Broadstripes was built primarily to help labor organizers find and use information effectively during campaigns. One of its strengths is the built-in tools within Broadstripes that collect and organize information specific to labor organizing:
- Assessment codes
- Leadership roles
- Broadstripes built-in data fields
Here’s a quick look at those organizing tools designed to address workers’ personal opinions, leadership in social groups, and employment information:
Assessment codes allow you to track and count how workers are feeling about something.
You can code a worker using a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 usually meaning “on board” and 5 meaning “most hostile.” Usually, organizers use assessments to count who will sign a union card or vote in a union election. You can also use assessments to count petition signatures, keep track of potential votes in political elections, or to turn out workers to meetings or rallies.

Leader roles allow you to map out a shop leadership structure in Broadstripes.
You name leaders in your shop, then assign them people to lead. You can then view your leadership structure in an auto-generated tree diagram. Read more about defining and using Leadership roles…
