An updated 2018 AFL-CIO Key Votes Survey form is now available for completion by investment managers. Please note that the previously announced vote at Amazon will not be included in the 2018 AFL-CIO Key Votes Survey as the proposal was withdrawn before the annual meeting. The survey form can be downloaded as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file here:
To submit your response electronically, please save the survey form to your computer and then open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader. Investment managers are invited to fill out and submit the form with their firm’s voting records. If you are a pension plan trustee, you are encouraged to send the 2018 AFL-CIO Key Votes Survey form to your investment managers.
The collected information will be used to compile the 2018 AFL-CIO Key Votes Survey report. The AFL-CIO Key Votes Survey is designed to help pension plan trustees fulfill their fiduciary duty to monitor the proxy voting performance of investment managers. For more information, please visit the AFL-CIO website or contact the AFL-CIO Office of Investment at [email protected].
The above is a press release from the AFL-CIO Office of Investment. I encourage investment advisors and managers to fill it out. It can also be helpful to retail investors in helping know what positions are worker-friendly.
