Protest signs have a way of going straight to the heart of a matter, cutting extraneous words to convey information in a way that’s clear and concise, but never dull. They’re poster-board illustrations of what copy editors do on a grand scale every day, meticulous work that is as vital to journalism as reporting itself.



Leading a union of journalists is a unique challenge in the arena of labor advocacy, where nothing is as powerful as solidarity.


Following a letter sent yesterday from copy editors to Times management, reporters join the fight to save copy and photo editor positions and protect the New York Times' brand 


With jobs on the line, Guild members express their frustration with the treatment, lack of transparency and overall betrayal of Times’ management. 


"Standing up for freedom means that journalists, no matter what government officials might do, must get the news, report it, and deliver it to the public," said Grant Glickson, NewsGuild President. 


Yesterday, Time Inc. announced that it is eliminating 4 percent of its workforce.


The NewsGuild of New York stands with the members of the Ottawa Newspaper Guild as they continue to fight for a contract.


Reuters NewsGuild members, in their third year without a contract, boost job actions nationwide. 


Guild President Grant Glickson asks, "Why would the New York Times want to join the sorry parade of other American newsrooms that have cut out the last, best line of defense against errors: The newsroom copy desk and the eagle-eyed editors who staff it?" 


From NewsGuild President Grant Glickson: "The announcement today that The New York Times will be offering buyouts and eliminating editors — including the Public Editor — is devastating for our members and grave news for the state of journalism."
