Workers at the National Endowment For Democracy voted last week to be represented by OPEIU Local 2. The victory -- with nearly 90% voting for the union -- came after three other DC-based international grant-making organizations unionized with Local 2, two in the past fifteen months. “It’s been so meaningful to be a small part of the organizing effort and to put my values into practice in the workplace. I’m so proud of the work we’ve done to make this happen,” said Alex Steiner, Program Assistant for the Eurasia team at NED. “We’re excited to see how collective bargaining will make a difference at the place we work everyday.” NED is a private, nonprofit foundation dedicated to the growth and strengthening of democratic institutions around the world.
