Meet Our Officers
President Grant Glickson
Grant Glickson, a longtime Guild leader from a family steeped in labor union values, was elected president of The NewsGuild of New York in November 2016 and took office on Jan. 2, 2017.
For the previous seven years, Grant chaired the Guild unit at The New York Times, where the local represents more than 1,100 employees. He has held a variety of jobs at the paper since joining the staff in 1987, most recently paginating the real estate and Sunday business sections.
He became a Guild shop steward in The Times’ sports department in 1993, beginning his transition from active member to union leadership. He twice served three-year terms as grievance chair. In 2000, he took a year’s leave of absence from The Times to work for the Guild as a local representative. He returned to the paper and continued his activism, including a second term handling grievances, before being elected unit chair in late 2009.
He has served on the local’s Executive Committee for 12 years, the last six as second vice president. He has also served on the administrative and finance committees.
Grant grew up in a Long Island household that understood the value of unions and cared deeply about workers’ rights. His father, Larry Glickson, is a consultant for Social Service Employees Union Local 371, and his sister works for District Council 37, which represents New York City public employees.
The father of two sons, Grant is also a former volunteer firefighter in Manalapan, N.J., and umpires youth baseball games in his spare time.

He is one of a handful of Times reporters to take, and pass, the paper's tryout exam for copy editors.
