Why Four Organizing Wins Are a Snapshot of the Future of Working People

Trump Las Vegas Workers Vote “YES” to Join the Union in NLRB Election

Working people across the country continue to join together to express their collective voice on the job. Eric Hauser, AFL-CIO's strategic adviser and communications director, spoke to the recent victories:

As we all deal with the on-demand economy, it is critical to note the power of the collective voice. The future is seen in the actions of workers over the past weeks to stand up, hand in a ballot and declare with one voice they want a union. These workers represent a snapshot of America and represent the best chance for every working family to have access to a better life.

In recent weeks, working people have cast their ballot to join a union. Significant examples include:

Trump Las Vegas Workers Voting ‘Yes’ to Join Union: More than 500 employees will become part of Culinary Workers Union Local 226/UNITE HERE in Las Vegas.

Temple University Adjuncts Vote to Join Unions: More than 1,400 adjuncts will join the 1,400 full-time faculty members and librarians who already members of unions at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Tennessee-Based Volkswagen Workers Vote to Join Union: Some 150 skilled trades employees at VW’s Chattanooga, Tenn., plant voted overwhelmingly to join a union earlier this month.
