ThinkProgress Unionizes

The unionization trend continues.

ThinkProgess has become the latest media outlet to unionize. The New York Times reports thatĀ Writers Guild of AmericaĀ East will represent staffers.

“For us it just seemed like a really natural step both for ThinkProgress and, especially as we looked around, for the digital journalism industry in general,” Alice Ollstein, a politics reporter, told the Times.

ThinkProgress now joins Gawker, Salon and Vice as digital media outlets that have unionized since the start of summer.
