National Audubon Society
Last week, after a year-long campaign, an overwhelming majority of workers at the National Audubon Society voted in favor of forming a union in an NLRB supervised election. The unit of over 130 workers includes graphic designers, editors, data specialists, IT professionals, grant specialists, program managers, researchers, and others and will be part of CWA Local 1180 in New York.
Last Thursday, workers at Luxottica, the world's largest company in the eyewear industry, held signs outside the Luxottica manufacturing and distribution center in McDonough, Ga. The workers, who are organizing with IUE-CWA, plan to ramp up their mobilization efforts to win union recognition.
