“Today, workers at the New York–based firm Sage and Coombe Architects announced the successful formation of a union—the second private architecture firm in the United States to do so. Employees within the studio’s bargaining unit, now officially the SCA Union, began exploring the process a little over a year ago, inspired both by well-documented challenges of equity, diversity, and workload in the industry and by labor movements sweeping the U.S. After the bargaining unit unanimously requested recognition earlier this summer, it received voluntary recognition from the firm’s partners—Jennifer Sage, FAIA, and Peter Coombe, AIA—in late August.”
