Why Gawker’s First Contract Is a Blueprint for Unions – TheTyee.ca – Mobile


youngish workers at Gawker might not be much interested in seniority clauses. They want the interesting assignments or good shifts to go to the best candidate, not the person who has been there longest. (And so far, they’re willing to trust management to mostly get that right.)

And they prefer a pay scale that sets a minimum salary and leaves them to negotiate the best personal deal, rather than a grid based on years on the job.

Thanks. God bless.
