Onion staff votes to union­ize

Regina Leader-Post - - YOU -

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.
