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."

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."

From The New Republic | The biggest threat to the health of the media industry is Silicon Valley. And the antidote might just be organized labor. 

Eight delegates—nominated by the Guild’s Executive Committee—and four selected guests from the NewsGuild of New York will be heading to the 77th CWA Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 29-31.

As we celebrate the birth of our country on Independence Day, it seems appropriate to honor our members for a renewed and strengthened energy in the NewsGuild of New York.

A technology company, anxious to grow its userbase and hungry for content, settles on a bargain: It’ll let people publish anything they want, directly on the platform. It used to be that only a select few had that privilege — but now just about anyone with a pulse and wifi could sign up, build out...

It’s not just the media institutions — Americans’ trust in the federal government, and each other, is dropping. But they do think it’s important to repair the relationships (and they shared some ideas for how). A new, quite substantial report from the Pew Research Center found that 75 percent of Americans think trust in the...

Twincest, “I am bothered that the dog now has my daughter’s name,” did I cause a woman to get hit by a car, how do I stop my 4-year-old son from playing with my nipples, my dying friend’s husband is sexting me, my husband and I blew through $3 million and now we’re broke, a...
