Mic Voluntarily Recognizes Guild
Today, Mic management agreed to voluntarily recognize the NewsGuild of New York as the collective bargaining representative of its editorial staff.
The Mic union looks forward to working with management to bargain a fair and inclusive contract. Their goal is to ensure their workplace reflects the editorial vision and progressive values of the company and its workers.
The newly organized staff issued a statement saying: “We are thrilled to have secured voluntary recognition of our union and are eager to get to the bargaining table. We look forward to working collectively toward a contract that ensures Mic is a workplace that includes and protects all of our workers."
An overwhelming majority of Mic’s editorial employees announced their unionization effort in late February, citing the company’s commitment to social and economic justice as central to their organizing campaign.
