The Trevor Project
Last Friday, workers at The Trevor Project, an organization that works to end suicide among LGBTQ+ young people, won voluntary recognition after an overwhelming majority of them signed cards indicating their desire to form a union with CWA. Their union, Friends of Trevor United/CWA (FTU/CWA), includes over 300 employees who are passionate and dedicated to the organization and its goals of supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Throughout the organizing campaign, the workers showed incredible solidarity to build support for their union by mobilizing online, meeting with elected officials, and engaging with the media, the communities they serve, and the broader public. The workers are looking forward to bargaining for a fair contract that will create a formal grievance structure and safeguards around layoffs, raise workers’ pay, and grant access to best-in-class healthcare, including gender-affirming services.
