Strippers on strike: Dancers in America’s strippiest city lap up major victory in fight against employer

Dancers from a Portland, Oregon, club became the second group of strippers in the country to unionize following a unanimous vote.

“Watching the pile of yes votes get bigger and bigger was incredible,” one dancer who goes by the stage name Poppy said in a press release.

“This is proof that strippers joining a union is no fluke, and that workers who want a union can have a union,” Actors’ Equity Association President Kate Shindle said in a written statement. “In this moment, it means that another group of dancers is on the path to a fairer, safer workplace.”

Shindle added that the strippers are “eager to get to the bargaining table” and “back into their club.”
