Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Gawker Organizing Campaign

Tomorrow’s election by writers at Gawker represents an opportunity for workers to have a strong voice in our ever-changing digital economy. The newsroom of the future will be staffed with the bright young minds who have led this drive, and they are doing so to ensure that they avoid the hardships of the past and present.

Whether it’s from a factory floor or the iPhone of an enterprising young journalist, every worker deserves a voice and an opportunity to be heard. The entire labor movement is united behind these workers, and all workers who seek to make a better life for themselves and their family.
