Support the Wirecutter Union: Stay up-to-date on our digital picket!
After two years of bargaining, The New York Times Company has continued to delay our negotiations through unfair labor practices and wage offers that significantly underpay our staff. We, members of the Wirecutter Union, are fed up. We’re prepared to walk out during the Black Friday shopping week to win the fair contract we deserve.
Our staff works around the clock during the Black Friday shopping week, our busiest and most profitable time of year, putting in extra hours over the holiday to serve our readers. Our labor continues to bring in record revenue for the Times and helped to grow Wirecutter by 10k subscribers in the past quarter.
We know that our readers rely on our work during this time to guide their holiday shopping. We also know you appreciate our labor, and want to know how you can support. We are asking for subscribers and supporters:
1. If we have not reached a deal by Black Friday, do not cross the picket line. Do not shop through Wirecutter on Black Friday through Cyber Monday.
2. If we reach a deal before Black Friday, please continue to shop through Wirecutter through the end of the year. Support union publications!
