ACLU National organizes with NPEU
A supermajority of ACLU national workers on Wednesday announced intentions to unionize and form ACLU Staff United with the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union (NPEU). The staff called on Executive Director Anthony Romero to voluntarily recognize their union. “We want to ensure that all workers have what we need to do our jobs every day, no matter the external circumstances,” the ACLU Staff United Organizing Committee said in a statement. “We envision a future in which staff and leadership make structural decisions together, rather than in silos. We also want accountability and transparency related to retention of staff, particularly given that dozens of Black women have left our organization over the past several months.” “Workers’ rights are civil rights and by forming a union, the staff is exercising their fundamental workplace right to bargain over the conditions of their employment,” said NPEU President Kayla Blado. “We look forward to a quick, amicable and productive recognition process with ACLU leadership.”
