NATIONAL – Nearly 300 journalists at Reuters, the global news agency, will walk off the job today for 24 hours in protest of management’s slow-walking contract renewal negotiations, the first major labor action by journalists at the company in more than 30 years. Reuters journalists, photographers, videographers, copy editors, producers and technicians are represented by The NewsGuild of New York. 


NEW YORK – The Atlantic’s business and technology teams announced the formation of a union today, the latest sign of growing support for unions among both tech and administrative workers in the media industry. 


NEW YORK - The WIRED union, a unit of The NewsGuild of New York, which represents over 55 workers at the technology magazine, reached an agreement on a first contract with management late Monday night. The culmination of nearly 14 months of bargaining, the agreement allows the company to avoid a planned strike on Amazon Prime Days, July 12th and 13th, two of the most lucrative traffic days of the year for WIRED Magazine. Over 95% of the unit had signed on to walk off the job this morning. 


The Guild has exciting workshops and panels planned for the Summer season including effective meeting facilitation, assembling your dream team, moving your co-workers into action, and labor law 101. 


NEW YORK — The staff of Wired, the science and technology magazine owned by Condé Nast and represented by The NewsGuild of New York, announced today that over 97% of the workers are prepared to strike on the two days of Prime Day, July 12th and 13th, if the company refuses to bargain in good faith and reach an agreement with the union before then.


We encourage our members to respond to this assault on personal freedom and essential health care by doing what we do best: organizing to protect our rights in the workplace.The federal National Labor Relations Act gives most private-sector workers the right to unionize and take collective action, including protecting the right of workers to speak publicly about their working conditions.


Management doesn’t approach bargaining as a give-or-take and neither should we. We are there to take—and how much we get is dependent on how united and ready for collective action we are. The contract we win is a reflection of the power we build. So let’s have a little fun with management’s schemes by turning their tactics into a game.


We’re thrilled to invite Guild members across our local to our Spring Membership Meeting on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 6:30 PM EST. Since our last meeting in September, we’ve celebrated some historic wins, welcomed an unprecedented amount of members into our union, and consistently led the way in showing what a fighting, democratic union can do during a time of turmoil and uncertainty. 

This year, we’re honored to have award-winning science journalist and NY Guild member Ed Yong join us as our Keynote Speaker,
