More than 120 workers across 11 regions at the National Audubon Society voted overwhelmingly in favor of forming a union affiliated with the Communications Workers of America in a string of official National Labor Relations Board elections last year, joining their colleagues in the organization’s national headquarters as members of CWA.
“Workers wanting to organize seem to be growing by the week,” writes Denver Post reporter Judith Kohler on the mushrooming activities of workers around the country seeking union representation. In the Denver area, she reports, 350 workers at Aurora HelloFresh are holding an NLRB mail ballot election that began Oct. 28 and will run through Nov. 22. Nine hundred HelloFresh workers in Richmond, Calif. are also balloting for union representation.
In Boulder, Colo. workers at Spruce Confections are organizing. If successful, it will be the first fast food service workers union in the Boulder area. Observed Robert Lindgren, Colorado AFL-CIO political and organizing director, it has become “a moment for workers.”
On Staten Island, New York City, four Amazon warehouses are reportedly organizing, undeterred by the defeat of a similar attempt at the Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Ala. this past summer.
