Bargaining and Mobilization Update

Los Angeles Times

After 15 months of bargaining, NewsGuild-CWA members at the Los Angeles Times reached a tentative agreement with management on a groundbreaking first contract covering nearly 500 journalists. 

The new agreement establishes pay minimums and step raises based on industry experience. Raises will average more than $11,000 per person.

"This is what we fought for," said Carolina A. Miranda, co-chair of the L.A. Times Guild.

The contract also includes job protections, limits management's ability to outsource work, incorporates robust provisions to increase newsroom diversity, and much more. For details, click here.
