Onion staff votes to unionize
The staff of the humour website The Onion has decided to unionize. Workers at the website and its sisters, A.V. Club and ClickHole, will be represented in collective bargaining talks by the Writers Guild of America East and will negotiate with the owners, including the Spanishlanguage broadcaster Univision. A.V. Club’s deputy managing director, Caitlin PenzeyMoog, says staffers began exploring union representation six months ago, with 90 per cent of the workers signing union cards by last week.
