Union Contract at Nava PBC Covers the Largest Number of Recently Organized Tech Workers

  • 20 February 2024

On Friday, Feb. 16, members of Nava United (NU)/OPEIU voted overwhelmingly to ratify their first collective bargaining agreement, which will bring unprecedented job security protections to more than 180 staff members at Nava PBC. Nava United is now the largest recently organized unit of private sector tech workers under contract in the United States. Now, city, state and federal governments can hire Nava when they want the quality work of a union shop. 

In addition to securing many of the current benefits Nava workers enjoy, such as unlimited sick leave, the contract provides new benefits, including across-the-board wage increases and just cause protections. This contract follows the lead of other OPEIU tech units, moving to establish certain protections as the new standard for unionized tech workers, including no intrusive monitoring, limiting the use of contracted and temporary workers in favor of full-time employees, and transparency around compensation and promotions.
