MLex employees unionize, seek voluntary recognition from LexisNexis

Workers at MLex and FTCWatch are seeking voluntary recognition as MLex Guild from LexisNexis and its parent company, RELX. MLex Guild, more than 20 workers at MLex and FTCWatch, will be a unit of the Washington-Baltimore News Guild, part of the Communications Workers of America, and is comprised of employees based in Washington, San Francisco and New York. The unionization effort received unanimous support from eligible employees, who are seeking voluntary recognition from MLex and its owner RELX Group. RELX also owns Law360 - another prominent legal news service - whose employees unionized with the News Guild of New York in 2016. On Monday the Law360 Union said they are "ecstatic to welcome our MLex and FTCWatch colleagues to The NewsGuild. We know MLex Guild will improve these superb journalists' working lives and bring positive changes to the organization as a whole, as our union has done here."

Labor Quote: Jackie Robinson
"I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being."

Robinson, the first black ballplayer hired by a major league team, played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbetts Field on this date in 1947.
