As a long-time union member (UFT), I support this. The power to collectively bargain is a big one, and I have been happy to have the benefits negotiated by my union, as well as the legal protections it provides.
I find it really interesting that this is being done in a publishing house. That is rare. Having worked in journalism prior to switching to teaching, I know that most newsrooms and trade houses do not have unions.
It’s also interesting to see how Image will react, especially with its history of being founded on a belief in creator rights. Whomever is doing the talking points for the union did an excellent job putting in that line about Image’s history. That was an excellent job of framing from a pr and marketing standpoint, and it backs Image into a corner a bit PR wise.
