IWW wins election!
Today wobblies at Salvation Army Greenhouse won their Union Election by a vote of 23 to 1.

The "Professionals" voted unamimously to be in the rest of the bargaining unit, keeping in with the spirit of One Big Union!

Greenhouse is part of the downtown homeless youth services and they join Streetlight, Porchlight, Harry's Mother by being represented by IU-650 of the IWW.

Greenhouse will soon begin bargaining for a contract so practice up on those songs and be ready to support these workers in there fight for workplace justice and workplace democracy!

In Solidarity, Paul Rowley
