New York Magazine's Staff Joins NewsGuild of New York
Staffers at New York Magazine on Wednesday morning asked management to voluntarily recognize an editorial union, joining a host of other news and magazine organizations that have similarly unionized in recent years. Organizers said that about 80% of roughly 160 eligible editorial employees signed union cards indicating their support.
The bargaining unit, represented by NewsGuild of New York, is made up of print and digital staffers, including writers, editors, producers, copy editors, fact checkers, and other non-managers at the magazine and its digital verticals — The Cut, Vulture, Intelligencer, Grub Street, and The Strategist.
