In a creative workplace, particularly newsrooms, it’s not always clear who is/isn’t a supervisor. We rely on knowledge of our workplace and conversations with colleagues to learn more about people’s job duties. Beyond that, we examine organizational structures to determine the scope of the union.
Management has contested that many people at Hearst are supervisors, and the union disagrees. Those of us who fall into this category will be voting provisionally in our union election. If you’re curious about your eligibility, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, or talk to your Organizing Committee member!
