Vox media is the latest online news and entertainment company where employees are looking to unionize. Several hundred employees across Vox’s eight sites are looking to join the Writers Guild of America, East. The company owns and operates offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, New York City, and Austin, Texas.
The organizing committee said the employees want management to increase transparency and communication and to promote workplace diversity.
This announcement comes a month after workers at the Los Angeles Times announced they are looking to join the NewsGuild. Other recently organized media groups that we covered can be found here.
