Salon Ratifies Second Contract with Writers Guild of America, East
Salon’s 16-member bargaining unit yesterday unanimously ratified their second collective bargaining agreement with the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE).
The Salon Bargaining Committee said, “We worked hard and in good faith with management to secure a contract that will vastly improve life for current and future employees. We believe the contract will not only lift the standards at Salon, but in the industry. Raising the salary floor and pay equity were high priorities for us, and now no WGAE member will make under $60,000. and our minimums for all titles better reflect the quality of our work and the dedication of our colleagues.”
In the new three-year contract, 40% of the unit will receive a salary increase of $10,000 or more. Click here for additional highlights of the contract.
