This sucks. was built on an ethos of supporting & bettering the lives of creative workers. Now, when their own workers seek to better their situation via a union, KS fires them. Incredibly disappointing to see them betray their own values.
Looks like is ramping up its union-busting efforts by firing organizers and fostering a hostile work environment for workers involved in the union drive. The company refused to voluntarily recognize the union back in May. reports
“This was the second firing of a union organizer since last week.”
I'm bummed about this and related stories. Planning not to back campaigns unless or until this turns around.
Wow, Kickstarter? Of all companies?????????? I am really really really shocked oh man completely just like wow Two fired Kickstarter employees were involved in the first union drive at the well-known tech company. via
