Intelligentsia Coffee Employees Ratify First Contract with IBEW 1220


There's a NEW Bylaw proposal that was introduced at the December 2022 Membership meeting .

This is to welcome the new members that are working in the Hospitality field as Coffee Baristas and Shift Leads.

While we are still bargaining with Colectivo Coffee, Intelligentsia Coffee is now a proud Union shop with more chains to come.

This proposal mirrors Local 494's bylaws in Milwaukee. This will allow all new members working in the coffee industry an opportunity to belong to a Union while still being able to afford basic living expenses. Working their way up to the middle class is all they're asking for and our Union will help them achieve that.

Local 1220 welcome Intelligenstia Coffee - our newest represented bargaining unit!

The employees at Intelligentsia Coffee in Chicago voted to ratify their new contract in December with an effective start date of January 1st. This group makes history becoming the first IBEW-represented coffee chain in history.
