Huge And True: BuzzFeed Canada Editorial Employees Receive Union Certification

Editorial employees at BuzzFeed Canada have successfully received union certification, becoming the first employees in the company to unionize. They have joined the Canadian Media Guild.

This comes as BuzzFeed News US employees are still in talks for union recognition, who we stand with in solidarity. ✊ Find out more about their efforts here: buzzfeednewsunion.com. We also stand in solidarity with our German colleagues who have formed a Workers’ Council. 🇨🇦🤝🇩🇪🤝🇺🇸

BuzzFeed Canada employees are thrilled to be through this crucial stage and look forward to the bargaining process. We love our jobs and our small but mighty workforce is excited to solidify mutually beneficial work conditions.
