Actor Anne Hathaway reportedly walked out of a Vanity Fair photoshoot in solidarity with the Condé Nast union workers’ walkout, with reports of imminent layoffs for many of their colleagues. Condé Nast owns many of the most recognizable publishing brands in the United States.

As has been widely reported, the actress was made aware of the walkout by union officials only after arriving at the scene of the shoot. She immediately vacated the scene to show her solidarity with the picketing workers.

The Condé Nast Union staged its day-long walkout to coincide with the Oscars nomination. Union officials are accusing Condé Nast of regressive bargaining and breaking the law in bargaining by rescinding an offer they had previously made regarding layoffs.

The actress walked out in solidarity when her union, SAG-AFTRA, joined the one-day walkout. Union officials are applauding her for her stance in drawing attention to their plight.
