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. 

Vacation – and savings – await!

Gen Z Is Open to Nonprofit Careers — but on Their Own Terms

  • 7 February 2024
Sophia Lombardo has always felt like she was destined to work in the nonprofit world. Her mother gave birth to Sophia’s older brother at 16 and later became the first member of her family to graduate from college, which gave Sophia firsthand experience with economic mobility and led to her interest in helping others.

Lombardo received a full-tuition scholarship to Earlham College through the Bonner Scholar Program, which seeks students who want to change the world through service and asks them to work in the community 10 hours a week.

But Lombardo was still on the hook for room and board, and she borrowed to cover the cost. Shortly before graduating with a business and nonprofit-management degree, she learned about a federal student-loan forgiveness program that would eventually cancel her college debt if she worked long enough in nonprofits or public service.
