In a statement, the union said that its members, who were mostly women, earn an average of $55,000 per year, with a starting salary of $45,000. Many employees, it added, feel pressure to work long hours without any additional compensation.
The union, part of the U.A.W., represents more than 250 employees who work in the editorial, publicity, sales, design, marketing and legal departments.
