The New York Times Tech Guild's Statement on Management's Decision to Not Voluntary Recognize the Guild
This morning -- through the press -- we learned of The New York Times’ decision to ignore the New York Times Tech Guild’s democratic decision to unionize, and to instead delay their recognition by forcing them to the National Labor Relations Board. This is a deeply disappointing decision, and hypocritical given The Times voluntarily recognized their colleagues in the Wirecutter Union in 2019.
We call on The New York Times to listen to their tech workers, the majority of whom have already voted via a signed union card. We expected better. This is a sign of disrespect not only to the tech workers of The Times but also to the 1,400 members of the Times Guild and of Wirecutter Union who support the Times Tech Guild.
