Digital workers at Al Jazeera America have voted to go union and thus join editorial workers at Gawker Media, Vice, Salon and The Guardian in what’s a modest but clear recent pro-labor trend.

 

The unit comprises 50 workers, mostly in New York City, with the company late Tuesday dropping a challenge to whether nine editors should be included in the bargaining unit.

 

The vote was 32 to 5 for joining the NewsGuild of New York. The National Labor Relations Board supervised the election, its first such involvement at any of the recently-unionized digital operations.
