Gimlet Recognizes Union

The union’s organizing committee first signalled the development over Twitter on Friday. In a statement sent over to me, the committee said: “It’s been a very long road, but we’re officially a recognized union now! Twice now, our membership has affirmed that we want to organize with Writers Guild of America ­East, to win protections and build a stronger company. Gimlet is now legally bound to recognize us!”

Next up: the bargaining process, which, as I noted in my column on the matter, can take a very long time.
