Gawker Employees Vote to Unionize, Join Writers Guild of AmericaPosted: June 6, 2015
In a Web posting, Gawker Media writers said they voted 75 percent to 25 percent to join the Guild. The union said 90 percent of eligible voters cast ballots.
Gawker first said it was planning to unionize in April. The employees said in the post Thursday that the next step will be determining what they want to bargain for and forming a bargaining committee.
While no digital media sites have been unionized, The Associated Press, The New York Times and other newspaper staffers have union representation.
