Congressional office staff members vote on unionization
Staff members from Representatives Ro Khana and Ilhan Omar’s offices are voting on whether to unionize.
It’s part of a growing movement on Capitol Hill led by the Congressional Workers Union. The organization has been working to help offices unionize ever since the house passed a resolution to allow it in May.
Michigan Congressman Andy Levins office was the first to unionize. The vote was unanimous. Now the office is showing support for others trying to form a union with notes on their plaque.
