Just days after the Edgewood Center for Children and Families workers began contacting elected officials and held a speak out to expose the conditions at Edgewood, the employer agreed to enter a settlement agreement on all charges pending with the National Labor Relations Board.
The NLRB approved settlement will include a 60-day posting regarding their misconduct and a new election for direct care staff.
The fight continues and the worker committee is moving forward with a campaign to achieve a voice at work.
Many thanks to all the Teamsters 856 members who traveled from near and far to attend February’s Speakout in San Francisco.
If you’d like to help these courageous workers in their campaign, please contact Organizing Coordinator Rudy Gonzalez at RGonzalez@ibt856.org.
