WGA East and HuffPost Reach Deal On New Contract
At 1:43 a.m. on Wednesday, Writers Guild of America, East members in the HuffPost Union secured a tentative agreement on a new contract with HuffPost and its parent company Buzzfeed. The Union will announce details of the deal upon ratification of the new collective bargaining agreement.
The HuffPost Union said, “For months, the HuffPost Union made clear we would not settle for anything less than a fair and equitable contract — and our unit stood together until the bitter end, united against proposals from management that sought to take this newsroom backwards. In the end, we secured a deal that is full of victories, big and small, for our members. It's a testament to the power of solidarity and the strength of our unit, 98% of whom signed a strike pledge that successfully put management on alert. We are incredibly proud of this new contract, which will build a better future for HuffPost and the talented individuals who work here, and raises the bar for our entire industry.” Read more in Deadline.
