CAPITOL VISITOR CENTER STAFF VOTE IN UNION:

Monday, September 20, 2010

(DC Labor)Tour guides and visitor assistants at the Capitol Visitor Center took a big step closer to improving working conditions after overwhelmingly voting for union representation on Thursday and Friday, reports AFSCME Council 26 Executive Director Carl Goldman. This sends an unmistakably strong message to CVC management that we need a voice at work and protection on the job, a member of the Organizing Committee told Union City. Almost 95 percent of the workers voted in the election, which is a an impressive display of civic engagement at such an historical institution. The workers voted 96 to 33 in favor of having AFSCME represent them on the job. photo by Patrick Wicklund
