Party Time For Conde Nast: Deal Is Reached On Contract Hours Before Gala

Condé Nast avoided a possible disruption of its Met Gala on Monday when it reached a contract agreement with the NewsGuild of New York at 3 a.m. 

The union claims it has won $3.6 million in total wage increases, a layoff moratorium through July 31, 2024, a two-week increase to paid parental leave to 14 weeks and several other concessions.  

The contract will be ratified this week, according to the union.  

“We made a commitment to do whatever it takes to get our contract,” says Mark Alan Burger, social media manager of Vanity Fair and a member of the Condé Union bargaining team. “Our pledge to take any action necessary to get our contract, including walking off the job ahead of the Met Gala, and all the actions we took this week, pushed the company to really negotiate.” 



The company issued a statement saying, “On behalf of the management bargaining committee and leaders throughout the business, we are pleased to come to tentatively agreed terms on a contract with the union,” according to The New York Times. 

This contract, the first for the union, covers workers on Allure, Architectural Digest, Bon Appétit, Condé Nast Traveler, Epicurious, Glamour, GQ, Self, Teen Vogue, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Them and Condé Nast Entertainment.  

The union won certification in September 2022.
