The Unit Councils of the New York Times Guild and the Wirecutter Union, which together represent nearly 1,400 employees, strongly condemn Meredith Kopit Levien and A.G. Sulzberger’s decision that the company will not voluntarily recognize the Times Tech Guild. We call on the company to reverse this decision and honor the votes our colleagues have already cast.

04/22/2021

This morning -- through the press -- we learned of The New York Times’ decision to ignore the New York Times Tech Guild’s democratic decision to unionize, and to instead delay their recognition by forcing them to the National Labor Relations Board.

The NewsGuild of New York joins our parent union, The NewsGuild-CWA, in strongly condemning the targeting of media workers by police in Minnesota this past weekend.

Our voices were heard! After the company’s sudden announcement last week of a change in editorial leadership and its intention to centralize the magazine's operations in Washington D.C., Guild members had a number of conversations with management. As a result, TNR management has agreed that no employee currently working in New York City will be asked to relocate and no one will lose their jobs relating to the company’s decision to increase its footprint in D.C.

On Thursday, we were notified via email that TNR planned to relocate the “majority” of its editorial staffers from New York City to Washington D.C. Simultaneously, a New York Times article announcing this shift appeared.

Tribune Publishing won’t recognize our union, but it also won’t pay us the bonuses it promised to “non-union” employees -- and the company is using the union election process it forced us into as an excuse to not give us those checks.

03/26/2021

The members of the New Yorker Union, Pitchfork Union, and Ars Technica Union have overwhelmingly voted to authorize a strike, with 98% support across our three bargaining u.nits. If and when our bargaining committees call for it, we will walk off the job to demand the contracts we deserve. 

01/24/2021

The Times Guild is troubled by the decision of New York Times management to terminate the employment of Lauren Wolfe, which was done outside of the just cause protections of our contract due to her classification as a casual employee.

01/21/2021

Today, the New Yorker Union is undertaking a twenty-four-hour work stoppage. Between 6 A.M. on Thursday, January 21st, and 6 A.M. on Friday, January 22nd, union members will not participate in the production or the promotion of material for the print magazine or the Web site.
