Organizing Update

New York Magazine

Editorial employees at New York Magazine announced this week that they are forming a union with the NewsGuild of New York-CWA Local 31003, and are requesting voluntary recognition from parent company New York Media.

The union at New York would cover approximately 160 full- and part-time print and web staffers at New York Media including Vulture, The Cut, Intelligencer, Grub Street, and The Strategist.

The employee group said that they believe that joining together in a union "is the best way to address our grievances in the workplace and allow us to continue publishing stories as honest, gritty, and exceptional as this city. We hope that New York Media will recognize our union so that we can begin an amicable collective-bargaining process and build a stronger, more equitable company for another 50 years."
