LA Times: Strippers at North Hollywood Bar Win Approval for Unionization Vote

Strippers at a North Hollywood bar will be allowed to vote in a mail-in ballot election over whether to unionize, the National Labor Relations Board confirmed this week.

The board ruled Thursday that the Star Garden workers at the low-key North Hollywood dive bar were eligible to be represented by the Actors’ Equity Assn. The decision follows months of protesting and picketing outside the establishment by dancers.

If the dancers vote to join the union, it would be the first time strip club dancers in the country joined a guild since 1996.
