This is a very important website. I am a Union worker but an American First and the idea of open/non-private voting is repugnant to me. It flies in the face of American tradition where your vote is and should be CONFIDENTIAL. Most Union employees feel as I do and they need to know what this is all about. As far as I know, I hope, this sort of thing is not happening in the Union to which I belong. If I find out it is I will protest. All I can say is keep up the good work. I will pass this around to everyone I can. They cannot intimidate me.

Arianna Huffington has publicly supported her employees’ right to organize since negotiations around their eligibility first began in October 2015. In a letter to staff earlier this month, Huffington Post management announced that they have reached an agreement with the Writers Guild of America, East (WGEA) to voluntarily recognize the union, pending a count of signed authorization cards. Perhaps HuffPost will have better luck than Al Jazeera.

Two weeks ago, Al Jazeera America CEO, Al Anstey, announced that the company will be closing its doors on April 30.

“[O]ur business model is simply not sustainable in light of the economic challenges in the U.S. media marketplace,” Anstey told staff in a memo.

This comes just months after staff members of the digital newsroom voted to unionize under the News Guild of New York (CWA).
