Steven M. Swirsky, a Member of the Firm in the Labor and Employment and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted by Corporate Counsel, in “Unions Making Inroads With Online Writers.”
Following is an excerpt:
Swirsky says all 26 writers and editors at online magazine Salon have given the publication a letter announcing the designation of the News Guild as their collective bargaining representative. He says media reports indicate the guilds are targeting a younger generation of employees who have more positive feelings about unions.
“These developments are further reminder that unions are not ‘dead’ and that in fact many are becoming more adept at focusing their messages and techniques to appeal to a new generation of workers,” he says.
Mr. Swirsky’s analysis was originally featured on Management Memo, an Epstein Becker Green blog.
