Employees Of New York Hex&Co Win Vote To Unionize
Hex Workers United is the name of a new tabletop union as of this week. 50 of 66 people voted to unionize, reports Dicebreaker, making board game cafe Hex&Co the first unionized establishment of its kind in the state. This comes after several attempts by staff to work out a union with cafe co-owners Greg May and Jon Freeman. The two reportedly opposed any efforts to unionize, causing workers to escalate to the National Labor Relations Board. The following vote resulted in a “yes” to unionization, and hopefully improved conditions for the workers.
