The New Yorker Union Goes on One-Day Strike to Protest “Egregious” Wage Proposal

HeadlineJan 22, 2021

Union members at The New Yorker magazine went on a 24-hour strike Thursday after denouncing “management’s egregious wage proposal” in their ongoing contract talks. According to the union, the wage proposal includes the right to decrease union members’ salaries by up to 20% at any time. In a statement, unionized employees wrote, “We are committed to The New Yorker, which is why many of us have worked here years — even decades — despite low and stagnant wages. However much we may love our jobs, that love is not enough to live on.”
