In a vote of 16 to 5, teachers from St. Giles International in San Francisco, an English language school, voted today for Guild representation.

The unit started organizing last November around issues of lack of pay for preparation time, low wages, inconsistent hours of work, job security and lack of benefits.

Carl Hall, Kat Anderson and Gloria La Riva from the Pacific Media Workers Guild worked on this campaign along with John Dugan from Communications Workers of America.
