In April 2021 tech workers in the NPR Digital Media division won union certification as members of NABET-CWA Local 31.

In a historic milestone for the tech industry, Glitch workers have signed a collective bargaining agreement with the company. The contract, which was ratified overwhelmingly by union members, will last for 11 months. It’s the first agreement signed by white collar tech workers in the United States, according to a press release from the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

After a rigorous organizing campaign, software engineers, campaigners and other workers successfully won voluntary recognition from EveryAction for their union at Mobilize, a community organizing app company. All eligible workers joined the new Mobilize union. The union is the latest to form as part of CWA's effort to organize tech workers, following last year's unionization of Glitch workers and the formation of the Alphabet Workers Union in January.

“This union builds upon years of passionate organizing by Floyd County Production workers. We are excited to work together as a collective to continue building a workplace where everyone receives their fair share and can thrive in a culture of mutual respect and transparency.” -- Margeaux McClelland, a 3d texture artist at the studio.

In March 2021 tech workers at software company Mobilize announced they had won union certification as members of CWA Local 1101.

“Let me congratulate the workers at Amazon for having the incredible courage to stand up and to fight for a union. The fight you are waging will send a message to workers all across the country that if they stand up, stand together, and fight, they can win.” Bernie Sanders on Twitter.

 

“In the fifth-largest economy in the world, it is shameful that working parents are forced to make decisions like bringing their children to work with them.”

 

After months of diligent organizing work and community building, the workers of Medium (including all engineering, editorial, marketing, product design, and other workers) have formed their Medium Workers Union.

An overwhelming majority of the workers have signed union authorization cards and have asked management for voluntary recognition. The Medium Workers Union looks forward to bargaining with management in good faith.
