Kickstarter employees vote to unionize in historic first for tech industry

The move reflects a broader movement for worker representation among tech employees. One Nazi-related controversy and a federal labor complaint later, workers announced plans to unionize last March.

Yesterday, Kickstarter became the first tech company to unionise in the US.

Kickstarter management took down the campaign, despite the fact that it had already been approved by their Trust and Safety team, the company's judicial branch, according to Slate. "Workers are organising around our values to build a stronger future", Clarissa Redwine, a Kickstarter organiser who was sacked in September, told Gizmodo. The administration eventually reversed its decision and restored the comic.

In a vote held by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) on Tuesday, employees at the crowdfunding tech company Kickstarter elected to unionize. There have been unionization efforts at other tech companies, including Microsoft.

The OPEIU released their own statement along with the good news, highlighting their aims to work with Kickstarter United to make sure the company lives up to the progressive values it claims to have "by ensuring trust and transparency from management, guaranteeing equal pay for equal work, implementing more inclusive hiring practices and giving employees a voice in the decision-making process". She was a Kickstarter United organiser who was sacked last September.

Kickstarter has denied that its terminations were retaliatory. "We fired two employees in September, and we understand how that would raise concerns given their roles in the organizing effort".
