FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- There's strength in numbers.
Since the merger of North Dakota's two primary lobbies for public employees and teachers, "North Dakota United" has been busy.
President Nick Archulata says new union locals have been formed at North Dakota State University and the University of North Dakota.
And, he says discussions are underway on setting up locals at other campuses.
Archulata says the merger of the North Dakota Public Employees Association and the North Dakota Education Association, finalized in September, will give a stronger voice to both teachers and public employees.
