Following an agreement between Pomona College and the union UNITE HERE, the College's dining hall employees will take part in a secret-ballot election administered by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on April 30, 2013, to determine whether or not they wish to be represented by the union. The NLRB is expected to release the results of the election shortly after the voting ends.

During the remaining days leading up to the election, the College administration will continue to cooperate with the NLRB in every way possible to ensure a quick and fair election. The College administration encourages every eligible member of the dining staff to take this opportunity to vote.
