Workers at Google Fiber contactor join Alphabet Workers Union
A supermajority of customer service workers at BDS Connected Solutions, a contractor for Google Fiber, signed union cards to join the Alphabet Workers Union (AWU-CWA Local 1400) and filed with the National Labor Relations Board for a representation election. Most of the workers are already dues-paying members of AWU-CWA.
This milestone is the latest accomplishment for the members of the Alphabet Workers Union and CWA Local 1400. AWU celebrated its one-year anniversary this week. Alphabet is the name of Google’s parent company.
“We are glad to welcome the workers of BDS Connected Solutions as members of CWA Local 1400. AWU-CWA has been a powerhouse since its inception and we are ecstatic to help Alphabet workers grow their worker power and finally have bargaining rights, ensuring their voices are not only represented within the tech industry, but heard,” said Local 1400 President Don Trementozzi.
