From The MarkUp Union on Voluntary Recognition
We, the staff of The Markup, are happy to announce that we have unionized with The NewsGuild of New York. Management responded to our request for voluntary recognition with an immediate and decisive yes, and full support for our union.
We believe strongly in The Markup’s mission of holding powerful institutions to account, and we’re proud of the bold and unique reporting style our team has developed to take that mission on. To that end, we want a fair, diverse, and sustainable newsroom that empowers us to produce the best journalism long-term. We want our newsroom to continue to reflect these values as The Markup grows, and we know that our union will help achieve that goal. We look forward to working with management to build that strong foundation in our first contract.
Upon recognition, management stated that “voluntarily recognizing our employees' choice to form a union was an easy decision. We look forward to beginning negotiations for a first contract."
