This study explored the development of union leaders' awareness, interest, and involvement in the union, their objectives for the union and for themselves as leaders, and their participation in other organizations. Respondents were asked about relations between the firms and the unions and between the unions and federations. Questions on union tactics, level of interest, and involvement of other union members and officials were also included. The study sought the respondents' attitudes toward the Chilean labor movement, their opinions of the steps needed to continue the country's social and economic progress, and the roles workers and industries should assume to further national economic progress. Several items probed perceptions of the personality of most Chilean workers. Data were also gathered on the effect the leadership role had on respondents' personal lives and cynicism about other people. Questions were asked about past family involvement in the union, respondents' career plans, and expectations for self and children. Standard demographic information included age, marital status, education, parent's financial status, education, and regional background.
