WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10 -- Rank and file members working for Global Contact Services, a multinational company  under contract to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates a call center for its Access-A-Ride service, cheered as the results of an National Labor Relations Board review of a union election were announced.

Local 100 President John Samuelsen called the victory a win for workers at GCS, who recently joined the 15 For All campaign. Most of the workers make less than $12 per hour.
