From The Daily Beast | Fortune CEO Postpones Major Event After Magazine Staffers Plan to Picket It
The following story originally appeared in The Daily Beast:
Staffers at the popular business publication Fortune planned to strike outside the magazine’s first in-person conference in years, ultimately forcing its postponement. Their plans allegedly had the support of Biden Cabinet members, according to the magazine’s CEO.
The Daily Beast has learned that on Tuesday afternoon, unionized Fortune staffers were set to announce that because of a lack of progress in contract negotiations with magazine management, they plan to picket the Fortune CEO Initiative conference set for Sept. 13-14 at the Park Hyatt in Washington, D.C.
“The CEOI conference is all about moral leadership and progress and how business can be vehicles for the good,” assistant audience engagement editor McKenna Moore told The Daily Beast in a brief call. “Fortune is not living up to those values.”
