Spotify Podcast Union Is Ready to Strike Over Contract Terms

  • The Parcast Union has said it will walk out if needed
  • The union and Spotify have negotiated for a year and a half

A Spotify Technology SA podcast union said its members are willing to walk off the job if the company doesn’t meet its contract demands, complicating the streaming giant’s effort to build out that business.

The Parcast Union, affiliated with the Writers Guild of America, East, is meeting with management for final contract negotiations this month and said outstanding issues include staff diversity, control of intellectual property rights and pay.
