Organizing Update - Google/BDS Connected Solutions

On January 4th, 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 Local 1400. AWU, which celebrated its one-year anniversary last week, is made up of workers at Alphabet, Google’s parent company.

“We are glad to welcome the workers of BDS Connected Solutions as members of CWA Local 1400,” said Local 1400 President Don Trementozzi. “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.”
