After a 20-month struggle negotiating a collective bargaining agreement with their employer, Planned Parenthood of Western Pennsylvania (PPWP), the members of UE Local 696 ratified their first UE contract on Monday, December 12. The workers, who provide a variety of essential reproductive, gender-affirming, and sexual healthcare services across locations in Pittsburgh, Bridgeville, Moon, Somerset, Johnstown, and Greensburg, voted overwhelmingly to unionize in March of 2021.
