ATTENTION

The Free college Benefit has been placed on hold for new enrollees. Hopefully, this will not be affecting current students.

The department of Education has asked the college to put the program on hold while they work out some issues with how paperwork and admissions gets processed.

We apologize for the inconvenience and stress this puts on our members and their families, unfortunately we are at the mercy of the Department of education and the College’s lawyers while they handle this issue at hand and hopefully quickly.

As soon as we know more, we will post an update.

Employees at Nava PBC Secure Recognition of Their Union, the Largest in Civic Tech

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 25, 2022) -- Staff at Nava PBC, a civic tech organization that builds government services, today secured voluntary recognition of their union, Nava United, with OPEIU Tech Workers Union Local 1010. They are now the largest union of workers in civic tech.

Employees at Nava requested voluntary recognition in February and have spent the interim weeks in negotiations with company leadership to define the scope of the bargaining unit. Nava’s leadership pushed back hard, following the lead of many tech companies, cutting out entire departments from the bargaining unit. Nava United fought for an inclusive bargaining unit that included technical and non-technical staff, and workers were able to include 12 colleagues who would have otherwise not been protected by the union.
