Many editorial and video employees at Vox Media are, at this hour, finishing up a walkout to protest their employer’s stance on a number of wage and other issues — including guaranteed annual raises, better severance, and revenue sharing on derivative works. (They’re represented by the Vox Media Union, which is an affiliate of Writers Guild of America, East.)

Excited to be walking out at 1pm today in solidarity with @vox_union
My demands include:
* Raises that exceed the Fed's inflation target
* Severance longer than management's proposed 2 (!) weeks
* A great steering wheel that doesn't whiff out the window while i'm driving

At 1pm EDT today, I and my @vox_union colleagues will be walking out of the office in a show of solidarity.
We need management to buckle down and finalize a contract that protects present and future Vox employees.
