By an overwhelming margin, Seattle-based Plymouth Housing Group workers voted to become union with OPEIU Local 8 today, after a multi-day election process conducted by the National Labor Relations Board. The group of 80 case managers, building assistants and coordinators, janitors and other employees join with hundreds of Local 8 members in social and housing services working to improve standards for all non-profit front line staff. “Our strong vote count today suggests this had been a long time coming. For workers at an organization like PHG that has a reputation for helping others, this will ensure we will now have the opportunity to make improvements for ourselves,” says long time Janitor, John Blanks. The right to have a voice to ensure safe working conditions, livable wages, promotion opportunities and many other issues united workers in their effort to form their union.  “We voted to have a union so our opinions and ideas are heard, because we’re the ones working directly with our tenants on a daily basis. When we’re empowered, we’re in a better position to empower others,” states Housing Case Manager, Meghan Rowley. [more]
