The popular progressive news outlet Salon Media Group is reportedly still refusing to recognize the union its employees voted for last month – despite being a huge advocate for unions.
The refusal came Thursday after editorial staffers rejected a counter-offer from management. According to sources for International Business Times, workers did not take the counter offer seriously. The editorial staff has cited other news outlets, like Gawker, in its decision to join the Writers Guild of America, East.
“As the surprising example set by the management and editorial staff of Gawker has made clear, the process of collective bargaining can commit management, editors and writers to work together in a new way,” editorial staffers wrote back on July 2. “That’s a critically important first step, and we are here to make it together.”

Which of course goes to show that all progressives that are for unions would turn around and do the same thing right?
I never even heard of them.
You actually believe that ?
And no I don't believe it, I just believe that is the point of the thread.

Perhaps Salon is known for pro-union pieces because some of the very people trying to unionize may be the ones writing the material.
