We won 16 weeks of PAID parental leave for full-timers — regardless of gender — as well as 4 weeks of paid time off to care for an ill immediate family member. These are major quality-of-life issues, and will go a long way toward improving the lives of our unit members.

More specifically, the company commits that 40% of the applicant pool who pass the phone interview stage will be from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in journalism. That rises to 50% for the most senior roles in the union.

We’ve also created avenues for accountability, including a diversity leadership committee to ensure the company meets these diversity and inclusion goals. The company will budget $50K annually to this committee.

Digital media is a scary, turbulent industry — which is why we fought to secure 11 weeks *minimum* of severance for laid-off employees, plus paid COBRA for the term of the severance and recall rights if an identical job opens up within six months of a layoff.

We pushed to eliminate its forced arbitration clause for *all* employees, not just those within the , and they agreed. The company will also eliminate non-competes for current unit members.

If the company sells editorial content or repurposes and produces it for a third party, unit members who were substantially involved in the creation of the work will see a share of that revenue, whether a percentage of the purchase price or producer fee.

We will now have access to recuperation time when we work unusually long hours, for unusually long stretches, or when we travel on our regular days off for work.

🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨 Proof that unions make workplaces better: We just received an email from our CEO Jim Bankoff sent to the entire company that he will be applying many of the same benefits we won as a union to non-union employees. 👏👏👏

Gotta tell you, this isn't necessarily a free rider situation, because if they mean "1099 employees", *they never had the option to join the bargaining unit in the first place*

That looks like a loss to the Union, Why should people pay union dues if they get the benefits of a Union without joining.
