Through a National Labor Relations Board election, Pomona College's dining hall employees voted to be represented by the union UNITE HERE in collective bargaining. The vote was 56 to 27. Throughout the process, the College respected the rights of the workers to make this decision for themselves and called for open discussion of the issues. The next step in the process will be for representatives of the College administration and the union to plan formal negotiations toward an initial contract.
