So Josh Marshall the publisher and editor of Talking Points Memo announced that his staff unionized.
This morning I was coming into work after attending my son’s school play and got an email from our editorial staff in DC and NY telling me they’d unanimously agreed to form a union and asking if I would voluntarily recognize their decision. The email was signed “Sincerely, TPM union.”
...I replied that I was happy to do so. I had our lawyer reach out to the WGA, East to formalize that agreement. And that was that.
It’s kind of nice to hear one progressive media site that actually didn’t have a problem with their writers unionizing.
I love Talking Points Memo. Marshall’s own editors blog is a pretty good read on what really is kind of big news without the hype.
