Guild Event | Baseball Night: Mets vs. Cubs

Join The NewsGuild of New York for a fun afternoon and evening at Citi Field, where we will tailgate before cheering on the Mets (or not!) as they take on the Cubs. We'll be firing up the grill at 3:00pm for an afternoon of pre-game festivities. The game itself begins at 7:00pm, so if you can't make the tailgate, you can still join us and we'll catch you by the first pitch! RSVP here.

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.”

Kia Johnson

Producer, Reuters

"Guild membership is important to push back on management policies that affect our members’ financial well-being, health care, and work-life balance."

A.O. Scott

Critic, New York Times

"...The value of our work is always in danger of being undermined or taken for granted, and the only way we can protect it is together."

Sami Diaz

Senior Development Associate, Roosevelt Institute

"With the Guild, you have such a strong community you can turn to, both in your workplace and in the larger network of like-minded people."

Ken Belson

NFL Writer, New York Times

"Unity is critical in a business where the bosses are trying to slash costs, take away benefits and gut morale with continuous layoffs and buyouts." 

Alex Press

Assistant Editor, Jacobin

"The Guild’s a structure connected to my work, but not aligned with the interests of my employer, which means I know they have my back. Unions are just the word we use to describe the power that comes from workers acting collectively, and that power is multiplied way beyond what my small shop could achieve because we’re connected to all the other publications represented by the Guild. And that’s a hell of a lot better than trying to navigate this industry on my own!"

Sindhu Sundar

Features Reporter, Law360

"At a time of cutbacks and layoffs in corporate-controlled media organizations, journalists need reliable support infrastructure to protect functional working conditions and to give them a feasible way to seek recourse if needed." 

Sarah Leonard

Senior Editor, The Nation

"Union protections allow us to speak our minds at work, whether or not we think our boss will agree. That makes for a far better and more interesting newsroom."

Employees at the progressive nonprofit will receive a 13 percent wage increase as well as an expanded personal and medical leave package as part of their contract. 

Editorial employees of The New Republic have announced that an overwhelming majority of its staff have joined the NewsGuild of New York, TNG-CWA Local 31003, the union that represents nearly 3,000 media professionals in the Greater New York City area.

From NPR | One of the nation's oldest and most prestigious regional newspapers, The Chicago Tribune, could soon have a unionized staff. Wednesday morning, journalists from its newsroom informed management they are preparing to organize and they have collected signatures from dozens of colleagues.

Workers at five federal contract call centers operated by General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) filed new wage theft complaints with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division. Since January, over 2,000 current and former GDIT call center workers have come forward to call on the Department of Labor (DOL) to investigate violations of prevailing wage law at the company.

How do you feel when you read — try to catch up on — the news? Overwhelmed, guilty, uninformed, anesthetized, driven to avoid it all? Áine Kerr and Mark Little, Storyful alums and the cofounders of Neva Labs, are testing ways to make algorithms and personalization work for readers, so they don’t finish their news reading...

“If I needed to know something, then somebody would probably knock at my door and tell me.” That’s the sentiment of one participant in a study on how “news avoiders” — infrequent users of conventional news — rely on social media and search engine algorithms to get their information. Benjamin Toff, assistant professor at the...
