Today, staff at The American Prospect, filed for a union representation vote with the Washington-Baltimore News Guild.
The Prospect has been a strong, independent and progressive source of journalism for more than 25 years. Making a move to form a union with the Guild will allow all staff at the Prospect to carry out its mission: to advance liberal and progressive goals through reporting, analysis and debate about today’s realities and tomorrow’s possibilities.
Following the election of President Donald Trump, staff at the Prospect believe it is more important than ever to live our progressive ideals, especially at work. Staff are now seeking voluntary recognition from Prospect management, and hope to make the Prospect a better, stronger place to work each day.
