Workers are unionizing at La Colombe Coffee Roasters in DC

Workers at La Colombe Coffee Roasters in Washington, DC announced plans yesterday to unionize with UFCW Local 400. "We call on management to voluntarily recognize our union," said the workers. "We are a collective of baristas in Washington, DC committed to making the world better through coffee and to creating a safe, fair, and equitable workplace we can all be proud of." La Colombe operates [link removed] five cafes in the District of Columbia. Workers at the Chinatown location (900 6th St NW, Washington, DC 20001) are seeking a union and plan to organize other stores as well. [link removed] Read more here.


Children's National doctors rally over working conditions amid RSV surge
The Washington Post

Hannah Kilcoyne, a first-year resident at Children's National Hospital, started a recent 14-hour overnight shift with a tall order: spend as much time as possible with newly admitted patients, write treatment plans for each, tend to an anxious father's questions about his sick child and maintain her humanity. She made it all work but felt fried. She was sure that better working conditions -- higher wages, a flexible mental health fund and a patient cap -- would make her a better doctor. Kilcoyne, 28, was among dozens of residents and their supporters who rallied Tuesday evening outside Children's National Hospital in Northwest D.C. to press for these and other benefits as union negotiations continue with the [link removed] Top 5 children's hospital. Residents at Children's National belong to the Committee of Interns and Residents, which is a branch of the Service Employees International Union and represents 22,000 resident physicians and fellows nationwide.
