ActBlue Technical Services Workers Unionize with Communications Workers of America; Voluntarily Recognized by Management

SOMERVILLE, MA – ActBlue Technical Services employees have elected to form the ActBlue Tech Workers Union. The Union has been voluntarily recognized by management following union authorization card verification by neutral third party and NY State Senate candidate Kristen Gonzalez, a tech worker and ActBlue user.

From the union

As the designers, data scientists, product and project managers, software engineers, and more that make up ActBlue Technical Services, we organized a union because we believe it’s the best way to ensure ActBlue continues to live up to its mission. We’re looking forward to swiftly bargaining a fair contract that addresses a wide range of workplace issues from pay transparency to maintaining an ethical and grassroots product. We’re eager to come together with ActBlue management to further our work to democratize political participation and empower small-dollar donors. We look forward to joining our colleagues in the ActBlue Union in taking a seat at the bargaining table, and stand in solidarity with them as they continue to bargain for their own contract.

From management

ActBlue is thrilled to have a second staff union on board. ActBlue Technical Services management has voluntarily recognized the Communications Workers of America as the exclusive bargaining representative for ActBlue Technical Services’ workers and looks forward to beginning to work with ActBlue’s newest staff union. Unions are driven by people power, which can make our workplaces even stronger and more equitable. These values mirror ActBlue’s work to provide long-term infrastructure for small-dollar donors and the campaigns, organizations, and nonprofits they support. We are excited to begin working together on a collective bargaining agreement that supports our workers, helps our work in 2022 and beyond, and contributes to the inclusive community we strive to build.
