Gig Union is a community for media and technology freelance and contract based workers in the SF Bay Area. Gig Union connects people to resources and support to improve business skills, deepen their network, and get gigs.
History: In early 2013, the City of San Francisco partnered with Bay Area Video Coalition to provide support to freelancers and entrepreneurs. This was unprecedented; contract-based workers are generally excluded from government funding. Thus with an Innovation Grant from the federal Department of Labor, Gig Union was born. Since January 2015, over 600 people have registered to be Gig Union members. With Gig Union, we can go it alone, together!
