Where We Work

Who We Are

The NewsGuild of New York is the union for media professionals, including some of the best journalists in the country.

We represent nearly 3,000 employees, primarily at New York area-based news organizations. The Guild understands journalism -- from print to digital to broadcast.

Since its launch in 1934 by crusading columnist Heywood Broun and others, the Guild has been the workplace advocate for practitioners of big-city journalism and employees in advertising, circulation and other related areas. It started with newspapers, but today the Guild is the voice for all news media professionals.
