Grant Glickson, President of the NewsGuild of New York, on Potential Ottawa NewsGuild Strike
New York, NY - The NewsGuild of New York stands in solidarity with the members of the Ottawa Newspaper Guild in their decision to vote in favor of a strike mandate. Since November 2015, the hardworking journalists and news staff of the Ottawa Citizen and Ottawa Sun have worked unprotected at a time when the free press is under attack around the world. Management should support its employees and offer a fair contract to the hardworking news professionals in the newsroom.
