Announcing FairTube e.V.
FairTube e.V. is a new not-for-profit organization that welcomes members and partners from all over the world that share our goals and values.
This organization is the evolution of the FairTube Campaign, a joint initiative between the YouTubers Union and IG Metall, the trade union in the German manufacturing sector.
The goal of the FairTube Campaign was to improve fairness and transparency for all YouTube Creators. Through dialogue with YouTube management, we managed to make significant progress on this goal.
The not-for-profit organization FairTube e.V. will act as a formal structure both to continue this work, and to work to improve fairness and transparency on other platforms as well — including “traditional” labor platforms as well as content platforms (including platforms for video, streaming, and photography).
FairTube e.V. will work together with creators and workers on online platforms, platform operating companies, researchers, journalists, policy makers, and other worker organizations to define and achieve fairness, transparency, accountability, dialogue, freedom from discrimination, and democratic participation for all platform workers, on all types of platforms, worldwide.
We welcome members and partners of all kinds who share these goals and values.
