Support the NewsGuild workers striking at Wirecutter!
Since July, The NewsGuild of New York has been demanding that employers live up to their obligation to bargain over any return-to-office (RTO) plans and that they implement rigorous health and safety standards in our workplaces.
From Poynter: Workers at the three New York Times unions — the Times Guild, Times Tech Guild, and Wirecutter Union — rallied outside the Times building Tuesday in protest of what they say are anti-union tactics by company management.
From the NYTimes: More than 100 New York Times workers and their supporters protested outside The Times’s Manhattan headquarters on Tuesday, accusing the company of delaying contract talks.
New York Times workers ramped up their calls for the company to end its union-busting with a fiery rally at The Times' midtown Manhattan headquarters today. Chanting “respect our union,” workers demanded The Times end its attempts to obstruct and delay workers’ efforts to form unions and secure fair contracts.
The staff of the product review and recommendation site Wirecutter, owned by the New York Times Company, have announced that over 90% of The NewsGuild of New York-represented workers are prepared to strike during the Black Friday shopping week, the busiest week of the year for the site. The union has been bargaining for nearly two years for their first collective bargaining agreement.
From the NYTimes: Union members at Wirecutter, a product review website owned by The New York Times Company, said on Monday that they were prepared to stop work during the busy shopping period around Black Friday if a deal for a contract was not reached.
