  • Kickstarter employees become first at tech company to fully unionize

"We support and respect this decision, and we are proud of the fair and democratic process that brought us here", writes Hassan.

In a Tuesday statement celebrating the vote OPEIU said that the issues that led Kickstarter employees to unionize "are identical to the issues resonating with professionals throughout the unorganized tech industry".

"I'm just squarely focused on the team today and how Kickstarter continues to pursue its mission and that's what I have a responsibility to", he says.

Kickstarter's employees have been working towards unionisation for almost a year, despite opposition from the company. The administration eventually reversed its decision and restored the comic.

Tech companies - giants and others - fight against unionizing mostly to avoid losing money through the raised cost of doing business. "Throughout this process, Kickstarter's leadership has supported the staff's right to decide if a union would benefit them - working with union organizers to lay the groundwork for a fair election, move the process along quickly, and give all of our eligible staff members the space to make this choice for themselves", the company said in a statement to CBS News. The vote, with 46 in favor and 37 against, came nearly a year after the company's employees announced their plans to unionize.

Kickstarter CEO Aziz Hasan tells The Verge that he doesn't see the vote "altering the mission or imaginative and prescient" of the corporate. For Kickstarter, conflict arose past year with the well-publicized firings of two union organizers and other perceived resistance by the company.
