Service Contract Workers in Nevada Vote IAM


The Winning Team, left to right: GLR Don Greshman, Thomas O’Bryant, Scot Long, and Richard Gomez (all three workers at Computer Sciences who were key to the win), Chris Yeaton (of M1 Support who helped in their campaign and doubled as a negotiator) and GLR Bud Michel

The Western Territory scored an important organizing victory recently with an election that drew overwhelming support from more than 200 workers employed by Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) of Indian Springs, Nevada. The win gives the CSC workers the opportunity to bargain for raises under Service Contract Act guidelines, which cover employees working for employers holding contracts with the federal government.

The bargaining unit includes 275 CSC workers who work at Nellis Air Force Base, a major training location for U.S. and foreign military air crews, and home to more squadrons than any other air base.

Western Territory GVP Gary Allen congratulated Western Territory GLR Bud Michel and GLR Service Contract Organizer Don Gresham for the win, calling it the result of “great team work and utilizing SCA networking capabilities, which we think is a necessary part of organizing in this industry”

The win follows an earlier successful campaign at an M1 Support, Service Contract unit also located at Nellis AFB.
