We, as workers of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England – New Hampshire (PPNNE), are standing together to form our union to be a vehicle for advocacy not only for PPNNE’s workers, but for our patients, volunteers, and community. This process has developed from a deep love of our work and commitment to respect and value all staff, so we can provide the best care to our patients. In order to continue this work sustainably, we are organizing to:
- Negotiate a legally binding contract that fosters an environment of respect where our staff have an equal voice in decision making.
- Improve staff recruitment and retention through improved starting wages and valuing staff for the skills we develop.
- Create more transparency and participation across the organization and accountability to decisions that are made together.
We proudly form this union with the sincere intent to support the long-term viability of PPNNE and its mission.
I hereby authorize AFT Vermont, AFT, AFL-CIO, to act as my exclusive representative in collective bargaining over wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment with my employer.
