Bargaining Update December 2022: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
In the most recent National Bargaining Update, CWA reported on the strike at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
Striking Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh (TNG-CWA Local 38061) workers at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette held a bargaining session with the representatives from the paper on Tuesday for the third time since walking off the job in October. Members of the other striking CWA and Teamsters locals who work at the paper joined the session to show management that they must address all of the unions’ demands to resolve the strike.
"I was disappointed, but not surprised, by the PG's refusal to bargain in good faith Tuesday," said Andrew Goldstein, Post-Gazette unit chair of the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh. "Between now and our next bargaining session, we will continue to apply increasing pressure to ensure the company comes to us with legitimate proposals.”
Striking workers continue to encourage advertisers to withhold advertising from the paper and subscribers to cancel their print and digital subscriptions and instead read the news from striking journalists at unionprogress.com.
