Today, Kickstarter United, which is forming a union at the crowdfunding platform @kickstarter, is asking for voluntary recognition of the union from Kickstarter management. If you are unfamiliar with the situation at Kickstarter, this article gives a good overview–including the fact that one of the drivers of the workers’ organizing efforts was the desire to protect Kickstarter creators’ ability to criticism Nazis and fascism on its platform.
The union has called on us to help them. I urge everyone that sees this, especially those that pledged to my previous Kickstarter campaigns, to participate in the union’s call for action by emailing, sharing, and posting in support of Kickstarter United.
Kickstarter’s leadership must recognize the will of its workers by recognizing the union!
