Salon Media has agreed to recognize the Writers Guild of America East as the collective bargaining unit for its editorial staff, whose vote to unionize was unanimous.
“We are very pleased” with management’s decision, WGAE executive director Lowell Peterson said in a statement. Negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement are expected to begin promptly.
Salon’s announcement follows the staff’s decision a month ago to unionize with WGA East. Salon’s vote came less than a month after Gawker Media voted overwhelmingly to be represented by the same union.
