In Response to Bad-Faith Employer Behavior, Impact Justice Employees Vote to Unionize

OAKLAND, CA (May 16, 2022) – Employees at Impact Justice ​(IJ) overwhelmingly voted to ​form a union with the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) Local 29 on May 13, joining thousands of nonprofit employees across the country represented by OPEIU's Nonprofit Employees United (NEU).

Their union, Impact Justice United (IJU)​, sought voluntary recognition from the organization's leadership in February, but after management's concerted attempts to stall and disrupt the process of good-faith negotiations, the bargaining unit filed for an election with the NLRB. Ultimately, a near-unanimous majority (23-3) of eligible employees voted to unionize to make their workplace a more equitable, collaborative and safe environment.

"Having worked at Impact Justice for more than four years, I have seen many employees struggle to change systemic issues within our organization," Kaid Ray-Tipton, a senior program associate at IJ​, said. "I see Impact Justice United as a continuation of previous efforts to ensure our daily practices are living up to our core values of imagination, integrity and liberation.”
