Action Squared workers ratify first contract
A year after joining the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union (IFPTE Local 70), staff at Action Squared -- the folks behind Action Network and Action Builder -- have ratified a contract. Highlights include incentives for professional development, paid parental leave, strong anti-discrimination and anti-harassment policies, and a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. “As a former union member and activist myself,” said Action Squared president Brian Young, “I’ll just say for people who are thinking about starting a union at their place of work but are a little nervous to try: the more nervous you are about the reaction of your organization, the more you probably need a union.” Read more here.
