Support Journalists for Quality News and a Fair Deal

Our communities depend on quality local journalism to keep us informed and maintain a strong democracy.  With the newspaper industry in flux, we believe now is an especially important time for journalists to have a seat at the table in the decisions shaping the future of the news outlets we rely upon.

We, the undersigned, support the efforts of newsroom workers at the Bay Area News Group-East Bay to organize themselves into a new unit of the Media Workers Guild in order to have more of a say over their salaries, benefits, staffing, and the quality of their work. We recognize the link between better jobs and better journalism in our local newspapers.

We urge you to honor these workers' right to organize and to refrain from any tactics that might interfere with this right. If they should win formal recognition of the union, we ask you to negotiate a contract with them in a timely manner and in good faith.

We support the employees organizing for quality and a fair deal at the BANG-EB newspapers and Web sites.
