IFPTE Welcomes New Nonprofit Units Into NPEU/IFPTE Local 70

IFPTE is ecstatic to welcome three new units into the Nonprofit Professional Employees Union (NPEU/IFPTE Local). The new units include Food & Water Watch, the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, and Action Squared.

Action Squared employees--creators of progressive online organizing tools including Action Network and Action Builder--are unionizing with the NPEU/IFPTE Local 70. Founded by organizers with deep ties to the labor movement, Action Squared works closely with unions, labor organizations, and other progressive groups that use its digital tools to build progressive power. Action Squared employees believe forming a union will allow them to create a more equitable workplace. Action Squared managers have voluntarily recognized its staff’s union.

Founded in 2013, the Washington Center for Equitable Growth is a non-profit research and grantmaking organization dedicated to advancing evidence-backed ideas and policies that promote strong, stable, and broad-based economic growth. Its fundamental questions have been whether and how economic inequality—in all its forms—affects economic growth and stability, and what policymakers can do about it.

Under the catchphrase ‘Fight like you live here’, Food & Water Watch (FWW) mobilizes regular people to build political power to move bold and uncompromised solutions to the most pressing food, water, and climate problems of our time. They work to protect people’s health, communities, and democracy from the growing destructive power of the most powerful economic interests. FWW is asking their employer for voluntary recognition.

NPEU and IFPTE have demonstrated a commitment to organizing in the nonprofit sector, achieving impressive wins over the last several years attracting a collection of organizations to the IFPTE family. We will continue working to strengthen these unique groups by bringing them together as one voice.
