Congratulations to the ISS Bridgetenders in District 1 and to the IBEW 824 Volunteer Organizing Committee and a special thanks to Kathy Smith (International Organizing Field Rep) as these bridgetenders won the right to bargain and now have a voice in their workplace. The election that was held yesterday had 39 employees vote YES and 9 vote NO. After a 7-10 day timeframe, the election will be certified.
Next Monday, another group of bridgetenders will hold their election and we are anticipating another win for these workers as well. Once both elections are certified, we will then begin the process of bargaining a "first" contract for these employees.
Again, congratulations to everyone that assisted in this campaign and especially to every bridgetender that voted to have their voices heard!!
