KICKSTARTER TO WORKERS AND PROJECT CREATORS: DROP DEAD

Today, Kickstarter offered its response. The communications officer emailed me, and said he would like to share a statement from the CEO with the project creators. The statement said that Kickstarter:

  1. Stood by its decision to fire the organizers, and would be dispatching its lawyers to fight their claims.

  2. Would not voluntarily recognize a union even if the vast majority of workers signed in support of one.

  3. Would not pledge to remain neutral on unionization, and would continue to actively oppose the effort.
