The Daily Press is making headlines as the first independent café to be unionized through Workers United New York and New Jersey.
Almost a year ago, workers at the Daily Press café said stability and inconsistent work schedules were a common theme, and changes were needed to improve their work-life balance.
Now, a new contract was signed making those workers a united union. They say it's a joint collaboration between the workers and the owners, and the new partnership not only gives them comfort but a voice where it matters.
"We can protect ourselves from being fired," says Gabriel Caldwell, bartender at Daily Press. "We have a health savings account that we made that part of our contracts."
