Three weeks after workers announced their intention to form a union, Mic Media agreed to voluntarily recognize the NewsGuild of New York/CWA Local 31003 as the collective bargaining representative for about 50 editorial staff members at the online media company.
"We are thrilled to have secured voluntary recognition of our union and are eager to get to the bargaining table," the staff said in a statement. "We look forward to working collectively toward a contract that ensures Mic is a workplace that includes and protects all of our workers."
Staff members at Revolution Messaging, a digital media firm known for their work on Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign and other progressive initiatives, announced that they are forming a union with Washington-Baltimore Newsguild/CWA Local 32035. Management immediately agreed to voluntarily recognize the union.
