Testimonials

Hilary Russ

Journalist, Reuters

“One of the NewsGuild’s biggest strengths is that they understand the journalism business so well. We all want to do the best journalism we can. And it’s important to know that it’s not just about a contract… the Guild wants to make sure that their journalists are doing the best work that they can. And that’s important to me because I care about the quality of the work that I do.”

Richard Perez-Pena

Reporter, New York Times

"I've worked in non-union shops where the pay was lousy, the benefits were lousy, there was no protection from the whims of bosses, there wasn't much camaraderie among the employees, and people couldn't wait to move on. I know that I and the people around me are better off dealing with management as part of a unified team with rights, rather than as individuals with little power, who can be played off against each other."

Erik Piepenburg

Senior Theater Editor, New York Times

"So much of the digital world involves being on call for what feels like 24-hours-a-day, with a news cycle that never stops. One of the biggest differences for me and my digital colleagues is that the NewsGuild has our back, understands the need for a balance between work and life, and makes sure we’re properly compensated for the time that we work. Being represented by the Guild has made a huge difference for us."

Hopefully you’ve noticed that the Guild is ramping up its programming efforts. From media mixers to classes that improve your tech skills, our local is working hard to engage members and help you develop the ever-evolving skills required of media professionals.

“It feels to me as though America is becoming more European,” said Emily Bell, director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism. “It’s saying the not-for-profit sector has a real place in publishing, not just a sort of patch to get from here to the next profitable model. And then it’s asking, please, Europe, help...

Google, an advertising giant, has been making nice with news publishers by developing a series of tools they can use to more precisely attract and target paid subscribers. (It also ended the first-click-free policy this month, allowing subscription-based publishers to choose how many articles to show to readers for free without search-ranking consequence.) Google’s nice...
