“A union campaign dating back two years and involving workers at several New York-based architecture firms has notched its first victory.

Employees of a 22-member firm, Bernheimer Architecture, announced Thursday that they had formed what appears to be the country’s only formal union at a private-sector architecture firm.

The architects will join the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers — and the firm, which specializes in affordable-housing and other residential projects, has recognized the union voluntarily.”
