CWA Reaches Agreement on First Contract at EveryAction/Bonterra
Washington, D.C. — Today, the EveryAction bargaining committee announced that they have reached an agreement with Bonterra (formerly known as EveryAction) on a first contract. EveryAction voluntarily recognized the union in September, 2021, after a supermajority of eligible workers signed union authorization cards.
The three-year contract includes $700,000 in wage scale adjustments and standardizations and 3% annual wages increases. Other significant provisions establish a 40-hour work week; provide financial compensation for on-call, weekend and holiday work; offer remote work options with protections against surveillance tools; and increase the company’s commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives. Bonterra also agreed to remain neutral if other employee groups want to join the union.
“This contract sets a high standard for the progressive tech industry and helps ensure that we have a safe, equitable, and inclusive environment for our important work making the world more just and democratic through technology,” said Michael Murray, an EveryAction Solutions Engineer and member of CWA Local 1400. “We are looking forward to continuing to build our union at Bonterra to ensure that everyone has the important protections that our contract provides.”
CWA represents approximately 300 software engineers, product managers, members of the sales team and other staffers. The workers are members of CWA Local 1400 in Boston, CWA Local 13000 in Philadelphia, and CWA Local 2336 in Washington, D.C.
