Editorial staffers at Insider Inc., parent company of Business Insider, went on strike after failing to resolve several disagreements with management over, among other things, the company’s health care plan, reports Ross Lincoln of The Wrap.

Lincoln writes, “According to the Union representing them, more than 250 Insider editorial employees are now striking.

“‘It’s official: THE INSIDER UNION IS ON STRIKE. Management failed to agree on a fair contract that settles our healthcare ULP and pays us what we’re worth. Starting now, over 250 Insider employees are on indefinite strike. You want us back @thisisinsider? Settle the contract,’ the Insider Union said in a statement posted on Twitter.

“The union voted on May 24 to authorize a strike if negotiations with Insider management broke down on or before June 2. And earlier Thursday, in a statement detailing its issues posted ahead of the strike deadline, the union explained that Inside changed the company’s health care plan ‘without bargaining with us,’ and accused it of ‘saddling us with higher costs and worse coverage.'”
