Employees at Kickstarter voted in favor of unionization on Tuesday. The firm's CEO has stated that the company supports employees' decision to unionize. This vote is consistent with a larger activist movement that has been observed in the tech space recently. While a number of tech firms have experienced labor activism in some capacity, few employee groups have gone so far as to join a union. Organizers have expressed their view that the tech sector has a lot of organizing potential, making Kickstarter an early adopter of what may be an ongoing trend.
