VICE Canada employees have voted to unionize

Yesterday news broke that VICE Canada employees have voted in favour of joining the Canadian Media Guild.

The labour board will soon issue a formal bargaining certificate.  The bargaining unit will include all VICE employees across the country aside from managers and salespeople.

Vice freelancers are invited to share their concerns about their working conditions with the CMG in the meantime. CMG organizer Karen Wirsig recently told Story Board that once the campaign reaches the collective bargaining phase, the CMG will aim to bargain some improvements for freelancers into the contract.

If you’d like more information or would like to speak to Wirsig in confidence, you can call her at 416-578-1651 or reach her by email at
