Northeast Parent & Child Society workers vote in favor of union
Northeast Parent & Child Society workers in Schenectady have voted to unionize.
A National Labor Relations Board election was held on Tuesday.
The 88 full-time and part-time workers organized with CSEA, saying they now have a stronger voice on the job, a safer workplace and fair treatment.
They join a recent national wave of organizing wins across the country, including big recognizable names like Amazon and Starbucks.
In 2018, researchers at MIT found that approximately 48% of nonunion workers would join a union if they could. That amounts to 58 million workers – nearly half of the nonunion workforce.
