The group also conducted the first “virtual card check” with faxed pdf’s of worker signatures from sites all over the country serving to set up the union. Of course, this being a progressive group, they didn’t need a month of company scare tactics and threats of layoffs before a union election. The union was certified by Truthout’s Board of Directors that same night.
Rock on. It gives hope to workers in many different fields that a union may be coming their way, something most workers want, a greater say in how their work lives are run.
I’m now going to go bookmark Truthout, the least I can do to help celebrate this great union victory!
