Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our Service & Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here's today's story.
The 29 front of house, ticketing staff and public-facing workers at Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis are joining Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 13 after management agreed to voluntarily recognize the group's union.
"This organizing campaign would not have gone as smoothly if it was not for the complete solidarity of this unit," said IATSE Representative Amanda Sager. "They were on top of everything from the start. I am personally very proud of them."
