NewsGuild of New York Statement Regarding LA Times Guild Overwhelming Victory
The New York local is proud and honored to have worked alongside these journalists to bring union representation to one of the largest non-union newsrooms in the country, and one with such vociferously anti-union management. The success of the campaign at the Los Angeles Times has shown that workers across the industry, whether at upstart digital news sites or at 136-year-old newspapers, continue to seek out union representation to improve working conditions and industry standards.
We celebrate victory today, but the fight is just beginning. The journalists of the Times have won the power of collective bargaining, and they will soon be putting it to use. As they begin work on a first contract with Tronc, we will continue to fight side-by-side with them. There is power in numbers, and we have the opportunity to make our voices heard across the industry.
