The staff at crowdfunding platform Kickstarter voted to join the Office and Professional Employees Union this month, making it one of the first tech companies to opt into a representative labor relationship.

Meanwhile, executives at Hearst Magazines sat down for the first time with the union organizing committee looking to gain representation for hundreds of Hearst employees across 24 brands. This is a significant shift in Hearst’s approach since learning of its employees’ intention to organize back in November.
