The union representing more than 250 HarperCollins workers says those employees have overwhelmingly voted to strike if the publisher doesn’t meet their demands for a fair contract. New York-based United Auto Workers Local 2110 said that 99% of the workers, mostly women, voted to authorize a strike over higher pay and benefits, diversity and stronger union protection. The union gave no deadline. Workers say their average salary of $55,000 is not enough to keep up with inflation nor meet the cost of living in the cities where they work. A spokesperson for HarperCollins said the publisher does not comment on negotiations.
