Baltimore steam workers vote to unionize after rejecting previous drive

October 3, 2023

Workers who operate and maintain underground heating and cooling networks for more than 250 buildings in the central business district and Harbor East successfully voted to unionize Thursday in a complete reversal from a failed union push three years ago. The unit of 55 mechanics, technicians, engineers and other maintenance workers at Vicinity Energy voted 37-9 in favor of forming a union, a full flip from the same group’s 34-9 vote against unionization in 2020, according to election results filed with the National Labor Relations Board.
