90% of workers vote for union representation, ending hard-fought campaign

Workers become first unionized Google Fiber workers and the first recognized bargaining unit of AWU-CWA since union's 2021 launch.

(Kansas City, Mo.) - Today, the National Labor Relations Board announced that in a 9-1 vote the Google Fiber subcontract workers with BDS Connected Solutions in Kansas City, Mo., overwhelmingly won their election for a union, after a many-month campaign that dealt with a continuous union-busting effort from management. A hundred percent of the unit voted in the election.

The unit is represented by AWU-CWA local 1400, part of Communications Workers of America (CWA), and affiliated with CODE-CWA.

These are the first Google Fiber workers to successfully unionize and the first recognized bargaining unit of AWU-CWA. Meaning that the unit will be the first group of AWU-CWA workers with bargaining rights in the country. Workers include retail associates at multiple Google Fiber retail locations in Kansas City, Mo.
