(Worcester, Ma. March 2nd 2022) –– Today, Movement Labs LLC has agreed to voluntarily recognize the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 2325 as the exclusive bargaining representative for its campaign staff. Movement Labs committed to voluntarily recognizing IBEW Local 2325 today following a majority of Movement Labs staff signing Authorization for Representation cards, agreeing to be represented by IBEW Local 2325. A third-party review confirmed that a majority of the Movement Labs staff signed authorization cards.

IBEW Local 2325 is proud of the internal grassroots organizing by the workers at Movement Labs, who overwhelmingly chose IBEW Local 2325 to be their authorized Union representative. Their hard work and dedication have made this campaign possible. We look forward to reaching an agreement that will bring stability, fairness and equity to a group of skilled and committed workers. We are excited for Movement Labs to join the ranks of unionized campaign, technology and communications workers.
“The time is now for similar groups of campaign, digital and progressive movement workers across this country to stand together, unite and have a voice in their futures. Unionizing is a perfect example of democracy and activism in the workplace. Workers all across these progressive movements are seeking representation from the IBEW and we are proud to represent the Movement Labs workers in the digital communications realm.” Business Manager David Keating said.
Negotiations will begin shortly and the team at IBEW Local 2325 look forward to ultimately reaching a Collective Bargaining Agreement that improves wages, benefits and working conditions for the staff at Movement Labs.
