NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2021 -- Staff at Code for America (CfA), a nonprofit organization focused on closing the technology gap between the public and private sectors, are the latest tech workers who have chosen to be represented by the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) Tech Workers Union Local 1010.
Today, Code for America management voluntarily recognized the CfA staff union through a card-check process. Contract negotiations between management and CfA Workers United will begin in the coming weeks.
"Nonprofit and tech workers alike are becoming increasingly aware of the power a union brings them at work," said Brandon Nessen, OPEIU organizing director. "Unionizing gives working people agency to advance not only their own interests, but the mutual interests shared by both staff and management."
