Vogue, GQ employees walk out of work; call for boycott

Don’t click on any Vogue, GQ, Allure or Glamour articles today, their employees are telling the public.
On Jan. 23, the writers under the Condé Nast global media company called for a 24-hour boycott of the brand as the employees walked out of the office and onto the picket lines.“Starting at midnight EST for 24 hours, DON’T CROSS OUR CLICK-IT LINE, that means no clicks, likes, reshares,” the Condé Union posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Jan. 22. “On GQ, Vanity Fair, Bon Appétit, Architectural Digest, Vogue, Allure, Glamour, Epicurious, Self, Condé Nast Traveler, Them and Teen Vogue.”

Starting at midnight EST for 24 hours, DON’T CROSS OUR CLICK-IT LINE, that means no clicks, likes, reshares on:

This one-day strike is to send one simple message to CEO Roger Lynch: Stop laying off the company’s employees.“Bargain in good faith, and stop the layoffs!” the company union wrote on the union’s website.
On Jan. 17, it was reported Pitchfork, a popular music critic website, would be merged with GQ. The merger resulted in multiple layoffs.
The employees have also started a GoFundMe to support their walkout. At the time of this writing, nearly $2,500 of a $10,000 goal has been raised.
The one-day strike for the media employees comes days after a historic American sports media company folded. On Jan. 19, Authentic Brands Group revoked Sports Illustrated‘s license to publish after missing a payment. The 70-year-old print and online publication notified its entire staff their jobs were eliminated.

Friday was my last day working for Sports Illustrated. I was among the few laid off immediately. It was a dream to work at SI, and I am grateful for the opportunity it provided me to grow over the past 3+ years.
