You Deserve a Tech Union

by Ethan Marcotte

We’re really excited to announce You Deserve a Tech Union, a new book by Ethan Marcotte, launching August 15!

Ethan Marcotte is a web designer, speaker, and author, who is perhaps best known for creating responsive web design and writing the eponymous book, Responsive Web Design—helping the industry discover a new way of designing for the ever-changing web.

Since putting into motion and supporting the responsive web design movement, Ethan has been reading, writing, and speaking about labor issues in the tech industry. In 2021, he started talking with designers, graduate students, economists, engineers, and labor researchers. He’s spoken with people in the tech industry’s labor movement who were at varying points of the union-forming process—from beginning to organize, to winning initial contracts, to operating as full-time union leaders.

Now, in his third A Book Apart book, Ethan presents a deeply meaningful story about the activism and organizing that’s happened over the last few years, led by the very people whose work built this industry. It’s a book about tech work, and how unions can help us build a better version of it.
