Condé Nast Union Members Plan Work Stoppage on Oscar Nominations Day


Nearly 400 union members who work at Condé Nast manufacturers might be holding a 24-hour work stoppage on Tuesday to protest negotiation practices that they declare are illegal.

The work stoppage coincides with the announcement of the 2024 Oscar nominations, which is able to happen Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET. Employees at Vanity Fair, Vogue, GQ, Allure, Condé Nast Entertainment, Architectural Digest, Glamour, Self, Teen Vogue and different Condé Nast publications are set to stroll out and maintain a rally in entrance of the corporate’s places of work in New York.

The Condé Nast Union shared its potential walkout plans final Thursday on X/Twitter: “Our longest yeah boy ever: Nearly 400 of us have pledged to STOP WORK when our bargaining committee calls for a 24 hour walk out. RT to tell @CondeNast you stand with workers: stop breaking the law, stop union busting, and stop the layoffs. Keep your eyes here for more soon.”

Back in November of final 12 months, Condé Nast CEO Roger Lynch introduced that the corporate will lay off upwards of 300 staff and take different cost-reduction measures to enhance effectivity.

“We’ve also had to make the difficult decision to implement reductions among our dedicated teams,” Lynch wrote in a memo. “These reductions will take place over the next few months and total approximately 5% of all staff roles. There is no easy way to share this news and our focus will be on making this transition as easy as possible for our dedicated colleagues with enhanced severance packages and career service offerings.”

Last week, Condé Nast merged Pitchfork with males’s journal GQ — leading to layoffs on the digital music publication, together with the exit of editor-in-chief Puja Patel.

Anna Wintour, Condé Nast’s chief content material officer and world editorial director of Vogue, defined the modifications in a memo to firm workers, writing, “Today we are evolving our Pitchfork team structure by bringing the team into the GQ organization. This decision was made after a careful evaluation of Pitchfork’s performance and what we believe is the best path forward for the brand so that our coverage of music can continue to thrive within the company.”
