Workers at Mapbox, a startup that provides custom maps to Facebook, Instacart, Snap, Lonely Planet and other companies, have announced their intention to form a union with the Communications Workers of America. The union is asking for voluntary recognition from Mapbox management.
The Mapbox union will be part of the CODE-CWA, the group at CWA leading a focused effort to unionize tech industry workers. The Alphabet Workers Union and the Glitch Union, the first tech union to formally negotiate a contract with tech management, are both members of CODE-CWA.
"Through our union, I know we can work to raise the standards for all workers at Mapbox, in the tech industry, and in the broader community," said Amisha Singla, senior data engineer at Mapbox, in a press release.
Mapbox is the latest in a series of new tech worker unions created over the last few months, including Mobilize and that of the tech workers at The New York Times.
