If you have a stake, you deserve a say.

In light of a post I put in the main feed, I believe an industry standard should be that employees get equity in their agencies. A union could win this. What other benefits wld you like to fight for

"We already have it so good... well, yeah, I work weekends. And nights. Especially on pitches. But that's just how this industry is!"

Rumors that an NYC-based PR company may be in the midst of organizing. They'd be the first in our industry, but still no advertising agencies yet!

Climate strike tomorrow to any who can join. It won't be as big as the one last week, but it's still an opportunity to push agenda items like a shortened workweek for productive degrowth.

Reminder that if you sell your labor to live, you're part of the working class. The "middle class" was invented (by people like us) to target subjective differences in lifestyle based on income.

Has anyone seen that Patriot Act episode (the Netflix show with Hassan Minaj) where they talk about the video game industry? It sounds very much like advertising and they’re finally unionizing.

What would be in our collective bargaining agreement? Sane working hours, for sure. Harder to lay off or better severance. What else?

One of the major challenges I've encountered in starting a union in my workplace is that people who are woke enough to know we need one are also the ones smart enough to jump ship.

So it seems that for us to unionize as an industry, it’s gotta start with the majority of workers at one shop. Who is goin first?

Uber just unionized. If they can, why can’t we?!
