Kickstarter Employees Request Voluntary Recognition of their Union

Brooklyn, New York [Oct. 2, 2019] – Kickstarter employees today officially requested from Kickstarter management voluntary recognition of their union with the Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 153, AFL-CIO.

On Wednesday, Kickstarter United (KSRU) members approached management to ask for voluntary recognition of their union after a months-long campaign to organize employees at the crowdfunding company. In May, Kickstarter management had declined to voluntarily recognize the union, preempting its employees’ official request. The company spent the ensuing months employing typical union-busting and intimidation techniques, including hiring a crisis-management public relations firm and firing two employees who served on the KRSU organizing committee.
