House votes to allow staffers to unionize

The House passed a resolution allowing all congressional staffers in the lower chamber to unionize in a party-line vote Tuesday evening.

The measure, introduced by Rep. Andy Levin (D-MI), was deemed and approved in a rule vote for a bill aimed at providing supplemental funding for the war in Ukraine, easing its path to passage in the lower chamber.

Supporters of the move argued that it is critical for staffers to be able to bargain their rights collectively in the workplace. While the resolution passed the lower chamber, where the change is expected to go into effect, it is unlikely to see the support needed to pass the Senate.
