    First Avenue says it will recognize employee union

    November 6, 2023 // Workers cited low pay, inconsistent training and short-notice scheduling among their top concerns. Unite Here Local 17 will represent all of the company's hospitality employees, whose work ranges from collecting tickets to bartending. First Avenue recognizing the union "is a testament to the love the First Ave. workers have for each other, their unity and their desire to make their workplaces better," Unite Here Local 17 said in a statement. "We look forward to beginning discussions with First Avenue." If First Avenue had chosen not to recognize the union, the next step would have been filing a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to hold a union election.
