National Labor Relations Board certifies Colectivo union

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A big win for people trying to unionize Milwaukee-based Colectivo Coffee.

The National Labor Relations Board today certified the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers as the bargaining representative for Colectivo workers.

The news comes after the owners of Colectivo asked the NLRB to review the results of a union election, released in August.

The board rejected that request, saying there's nothing to review.

It's not clear when union contract negotiations will begin.
