News Organization Wired Organizes and Pushes for Management to Recognize its Union
Back in April, they officially started working with The News Guild of New York:
Since its founding 27 years ago, WIRED has prepared readers and viewers for the promises and upheavals of the future. Now it’s time to secure our own place in that future. We are proud to announce the @wired editorial staff has formed a union with @nyguild. 1/ pic.twitter.com/0TTwTHUMad

And now, according to Anthony Lydgate, a sufficient number of staff has signed union cards:
An overwhelming number of @WIRED employees have signed union cards.
There are two ways this plays out:
1. Condé Nast recognizes us voluntarily
2. We take it to the NLRB and win in a landslide
Either way, there will be a @wiredunion.
Let’s stop this nonsense and get to work. https://t.co/tNL6S0Oj7U
