Popular Online Media Company Agrees to Recognize Employees’ Labor Union

 

By Sahid Fawaz

Online media employees continue to score big union victories, with the latest one happening in New York.

The New York Post reports:

“Vox Media is the latest digital publishing company to agree to bargain with unionized editorial workers.

About 400 creative professionals employed on the company’s online publications will be covered by a collective bargaining agreement to be hammered out with the Writers Guild of America East, the union said Thursday.

The sites include Curbed, Eater, Recode, SB Nation, Racked, Polygon, The Verge and Vox.com.

‘The company decision affirms what we have known since the start of our campaign,” wrote the Vox Media Union Organizing Committee. “Across eight verticals, our colleagues overwhelmingly want the benefits and protections that come from union membership.’

Vox said it will be sitting down with union representatives “over the next week to finalize and sign a recognition agreement to voluntarily recognize the Vox Media Union.”

WGA East now has organized shops including Vice Media, the Huffington Post, Gizmodo Media Group, The Root, Thrillist, Salon and others.”
