Organize, organize, organize!

Despite the ongoing pandemic, local union organizing continues; here are three recent wins:
The staff at The Hub Project, in partnership with the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union, have unionized and requested voluntary recognition from management.
Office staff working for the Democratic Party of Virginia have unionized with UFCW Local 400 and negotiations on a first contract will begin shortly.
Staff members at Planned Parenthood’s national Washington, D.C., office have unionized with SEIU 500 and reached an agreement with management to improve workers’ rights.
