Workers Organize America’s First Climbing Gym Union

April 13, 2022

Workers at Movement Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia, recently announced the imminent certification of their climbing gym union, reportedly the first in the United States. The process was overseen by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), an independent federal agency that enforces the National Labor Relations Act and “protects the rights of most private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve their wages and working conditions,” per the NLRB’s website.
