Contract workers at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service Center in St. Albans are thinking about starting a union.

They launched a petition drive Tuesday, a day after Stanley Inc., of Arlington, Virginia, cut wages by $1.70 an hour for 100 data entry workers.

Stanley took over operations at the service center on Monday.

Jeremy Murray, a Stanley worker and union supporter, says workers are in a state of "nervous anticipation.”

He says by joining the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America employees will be able to do something proactive about their working conditions.
