Supporting our Pittsburgh NewsGuild-CWA Siblings on Strike

October 21, 2022 - On Monday, the newsroom workers of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, represented by the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh-CWA, voted to authorize a strike against the company. We stand with our CWA Union siblings on strike! Post-Gazette Guild workers deserve a contract. Management needs to get back to the table and treat journalists with respect. 

“These journalists are just trying to do their jobs in service of the people of Pittsburgh,” said NewsGuild President Jon Schleuss. “It’s despicable for the Blocks to fight their own workers and disrespect their rights to have a union. They need to bargain in good faith now.”

The owners of the Post-Gazette, Block Communications Inc., led by twin brothers John and Allan Block, have spent millions of dollars to try to bust their workers’ unions rather than attempting to reach a fair contract with the writers, editors, photographers, artists, designers and other journalists whose hard work has provided the Pittsburgh community with award-winning journalism since the late 1700s.
