Sciencenter Staff Elect to Unionize

Ithaca, New York – Today the ballots of the October 24 election held at the Sciencenter by the National Labor Relations Board were counted. Of the non-challenged voters who cast ballots, the vote was unanimous for staff to be represented by Workers United, SEIU. The Sciencenter management is pleased by the fact that nearly everyone who was eligible to vote did so. Now that the union has been certified, management looks forward to the next step of negotiating in good faith for a first collective bargaining agreement.

The Board, management and staff of the Sciencenter remain committed to cultivating a broad community of curious, confident, critical thinkers.
