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."

One of the most important lessons I learned as Vice’s chief technology officer was that while the operational needs of the company might feel unique, fundamentally those needs were no different from any other media company. Put another way, while our content was different from other media companies, our business processes and systems didn’t need...
