The majority of Spoof Writers are wanting to form a Union.
The major issue concerning these Spoof Writers is the appalling conditions in which they work.
A large number of writers work in dank, dark basements, tapping away at their keyboards by candlelight. They have no running water and feel isolated from the real world speaking online only to fellow spoofers.
Others have to use their local libraries' computers as they don't own their own.
If 'unionised' or 'unionized' they hope against hope that their union would fight for better working conditions.
Whilst these writers have threatened to go on strike if their demand is not met, another group of Spoof Writers have issued a statement saying that THEY do NOT want to be unionised or even unionized as they are independently wealthy and write in wonderful surroundings using state of the art equipment.
The owner of The Spoof, when he began the site, had no idea it would end up in a 'class war'...the haves and have nots, and he is deeply saddened by this latest news.
One solution has been put forward - that the wealthier Spoof Writers donate monies to the poorer writers in order that they may improve their working conditions.
A mediator is being brought into the 'in camera' meetings of Spoof Writers and Admin. The mediator has no experience working with unpaid workers and says it is the biggest challenge of his career.
It is not know how long it will take for all parties to come together in agreement.
More as we get it.
