Fifteen employees at PartnersGlobal joined Local 2 as a newly organized unit on Monday, March 11th. The unit, comprised primarily of program officers and finance staff, spent months building up power among their colleagues before making a request for voluntary recognition in January.
PartnersGlobal, based in Washington, DC, works internationally with grassroots organizations to fund sustainable peace-making efforts and to support local democratic initiatives. The unionizing campaign follows in the footsteps of recent organizing successes at the Center for American Progress (CAP) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI), represented by the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union and Local 2, respectively.
OPEIU Local 2 is a labor union supporting over 8,000 professional workers in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We represent staff members across a number of sectors, including healthcare, non-profit, and more.
