The company tried the usual union-busting tricks and failed. Central Parking held up the certification process by challenging some of the ballots. An administrative law judge ruled 28 challenged ballots were ineligible, while seven ballots were eligible. That didn't change the outcome of the election.
Local 25 President Sean O'Brien said,

Now they are members of Local 25 and we will work hard at negotiating a strong first contract that addresses their concerns.Welcome to our new brothers and sisters!
