Wyoming Democratic Party unionizes

The Wyoming Democratic Party staff is unionizing as a part of the IBEW Local 415 union.


Workers handed in their union cards Saturday to Joe Barbuto, the chair of the party, and he voluntarily recognized the union.


“A big part of it is walking the walk,” said Lindsey Hanlon, the deputy communications director and a union member. “It seems appropriate that the Democratic Party is also unionized so we’re showing support not just with our words, but with our actions,” she continued.
