It took more than two years, but 220 workers the Huntington Ingalls Shipyard in Newport News, Va.,—formerly Northrup Grumman Shipbuilding—got their votes counted and won representation with the Machinists (IAM).
The Radiological Control Monitors Techs (RCTs) voted in 2009, but the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) didn’t count the votes while it considered a request by Northrup Grumman to include more employees the voting unit, according to the IAM.
