Twitter Web App : Victor Jeffreys II was the heart and soul of GMG's culture, as well as an invaluable, competent co-worker. GMG Union vehemently opposed his termination and we miss him still today. businessinsider.com/go-media-accus…

Twitter Web App : Hell yeah! Welcome to the unionhood, Jewish Currents! twitter.com/JCurrents_Unio…

Twitter Web App : We're pleased that our June 11 letter to VMG management asking for Amy Emmerich's resignation was finally addressed. We're looking forward to working with new leadership who's experienced in overseeing a diverse @refinery29 newsroom committed to serving a diverse audience. twitter.com/kerrymflynn/st…

Twitter Web App : So thankful for all the solidarity from these Writers Guild of America, East members as we finally vote to formalize our union and start bargaining a union contract. We can’t wait to officially join all of you in securing a collective voice at work!

Twitter Web App : *checks mail* NLRB ballots are arriving?!

We’re absolutely pumped to vote YES and move on to the next step in giving more than 500 Hearst employees across 28 brands a voice at work.

Twitter Web App : Any progress we've made on the issue of pay equity is thanks to our unit's insistence on pay grades, a measure the company resisted. We stand in solidarity with Condé staffers standing up to a company that would rather hire a union-busting firm than pay them what they deserve. twitter.com/lainnafader/st…

Twitter Web App : Today our union called for Sue Marcoux to resign. The testimonies provided sufficient evidence that her repeated behavior is abusive & racist. We want real cultural changes within CPJ & that starts with trusting our most vulnerable employees and ensuring a safe work environment.

Twitter Web App : It's been more than 48 hours, and Committee to Protect Journalists management has still not said anything about this to our union or staff. We believe management owes it to staff to take accusations of racism and sexual harassment seriously.

Twitter Web App : VICE's Canadian union took hard losses Wednesday as a global restructure cut over half the bargaining unit. The union negotiated more severance for laid-off workers and worked with management to keep the majority WOC newsroom intact. twitter.com/CMGLaGuilde/st…

Twitter Web App : We stand in solidarity with our @condenast colleagues who are bravely speaking out about the editors & execs who contribute to racism and discrimination within our company. If Condé is “dedicated to creating a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace,” it must do the following:

Twitter Web App : Diversity has been one of our unit’s top priorities since we began bargaining eight months ago. As our committee returns to the table tomorrow, we’re hoping to make progress on a number of issues—but especially diversity.

Twitter Web App : We stand in solidarity with all of our BIPOC colleagues — past and present. All of podcasting, including Gimlet, is in need of some long overdue changes. We're committed as ever to fighting for a better Gimlet. twitter.com/ngofeenm/statu…

Twitter Web App : The following resolution was unanimously passed by the Council of the Writers Guild of America, East calling on the AFL-CIO to disaffiliate with the International Union of Police Associations (IUPA).

Twitter Web App : However, there are many changes left to be made at the company to account for the aggressions that our past and current employees have faced. We hope to continue taking leadership to task on their promises to promote a diverse & inclusive workplace in the immediate future.

Twitter Web App : This morning, senior management announced that Christene Barberich has stepped down as Refinery29's Global Editor-In-Chief and the company has started an immediate search for our next EIC. We are in support of this decision, which will involve a "fully inclusive hiring process."

Twitter Web App : Congrats to Wired Union on their big day! twitter.com/wiredunion/sta…

Twitter Web App : "The largest labor coalition in King County is giving the Seattle Police Officers Guild an ultimatum: acknowledge and address racism in law enforcement and in their union or risk being kicked out of the group."

Let's follow suit Writers Guild of America, East AFL-CIO. WORKERS UNIONS FOR BLACK LIVES! twitter.com/Crosscut/statu…

Twitter Web App : Happy anniversary! A unionized newsroom is a stronger newsroom! We're grateful to those who lead the charge and the network of support that exists across unionized newsrooms. And we're proud to fight for and protect our workers every day 💗 twitter.com/WGAEast/status…

Twitter Web App : We stand in solidarity with former staff members who have spoken out against aggressions they faced while working at Refinery29. In response to this & numerous stories from within our own unit, we've written a letter to management asking for immediate action at the highest level twitter.com/AshleyAlese/st…
