Staff members at StoryCorps, a nonprofit that curates and shares stories of everyday Americans, voted for representation by CWA Local 1180 by an 83 percent vote in an NLRB election. The 24 staff members work in Brooklyn, N.Y., San Francisco, and Chicago.
"In the past, we experienced sudden layoffs, worked for low wages, and weren't able to negotiate over working conditions. My colleagues and I decided to come together and organize so we could have a seat at the table to discuss issues like healthcare benefits, severance packages, and greater transparency around pay. Now we'll be able to have a say in making StoryCorps a better place to work," said Mia Warren, production assistant.
