Bloggers Consider Forming Labor Union

AP is reporting that at the YearlyKos Convention, the Committee to Protect Bloggers is trying to band blogggers together to form a labor union the Committee hopes will help them receive health insurance, conduct collective bargaining or even set professional standards. From the article:

The effort is an extension of the blogosphere's growing power and presence, especially within the political realm, and for many, evokes memories of the early labor organization of freelance writers in the early 1980s.

Organizers hope a bloggers' labor group will not only showcase the growing professionalism of the Web-based writers, but also the importance of their roles in candidates' campaigns.

Professional association, maybe. Union, not likely. Hat tip to Adjunct Law Prof Blog. [JH]
