Today, the DCCC and DCCC Staff Union announced the committee has voluntarily recognized its staff union, which is organized as a part of Teamsters Local 238. Together, the Committee and Union completed negotiations about the scope of the unit and conducted a card count, independently verified by Jen Sherer of the Economic Policy Institute.
The DCCC Staff Union is now the largest collective bargaining unit in the Democratic Party.
Tim Persico released the following statement celebrating this important milestone for DCCC and its staff:
“Working together, we’ve formed the Democratic Party’s largest collective bargaining unit. Today’s voluntary recognition is a testament to our shared commitment to live the values we fight for – both at the ballot box and within our places of work. DCCC’s workforce is among the most talented, inspiring, and diverse teams in Democratic politics. Now, DCCC Staff Union and DCCC will begin their work to ensure the committee remains an awesome place to work today and into the future.”
Jacob Haythorn, a representative for the DCCC Staff Union, released the following statement:
“With this critical step completed, the DCCC Staff Union looks forward to continuing our work with DCCC leadership and Teamsters Local 238 to ensure an expeditious bargaining process. We are eager to meet at the bargaining table, roll up our sleeves, and secure a contract to guarantee the DCCC is the best place to work in Democratic politics for all current and future staff.”
