Five years ago, workers at Gawker Media voted to form a union with the Writer’s Guild of America, East. That set off a wave of unionization among digital writers and podcasters. In five years, the Guild has organized 21 shops and over 2,000 workers.
In honor of the 5 year anniversary, Haley Shaffer and I interviewed Guild members and organizers to hear how much the union has accomplished. See the report and website display here!
