Student workers in the Reed College dorms voted 36-2 to unionize in ballots counted Oct. 27. The 44 workers are known as housing advisors. They live in the dorms, plan social events, and connect dorm residents with resources on campus. They’ll be represented by Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 11. Reed housing advisors previously formed an independent union in 2018, but abandoned the effort after the college refused to recognize the union and filed legal appeals.
