Hundreds of authors have thrown their support behind the HarperCollins Union, whose members are currently on strike.
NPR reports that over five hundred authors — some, but not all, of whom are published by HarperCollins — signed a letter sent to publishing executives Thursday morning.
Barbara Kingsolver, Jacqueline Woodson, and Kwame Alexander are among those who urged the publishing house to ensure employees are "compensated justly and fairly for their labor."
They said they would omit HarperCollins editors from submission lists until an agreement is reached.
The union has been on strike since November 10 and working without a contract since April.
