Bargaining Update

New York Times

New York Times Walkout

Over 1,000 workers at the New York Times, members of the NewsGuild of New York (TNG-CWA Local 31003), walked off the job today due to the company’s failure to bargain in good faith, reach a fair contract agreement with the workers, and meet their demands. The union bargaining committee offered to stay at the table for as long as it took to reach a deal and avert the walkout, but management walked away from the table Wednesday evening and refused to return.

Workers asked readers to stand with them on the digital picket line during the 24-hour work stoppage. “Read local news. Listen to public radio. Make something from a cookbook. Break your Wordle streak,” members across the unit tweeted.

Norse Atlantic Airways

Following a historic pre-hire agreement, company neutrality in union organizing, and a historic card check certification by the National Mediation Board, U.S.-based AFA-CWA Flight Attendants at Norse Atlantic Airways voted unanimously to ratify their first contract. The two-year deal locks in industry leading starting pay and job protections in the U.S., comprehensive healthcare, a 401(k), and other key benefits. Norse Atlantic Airways is a Norwegian, low-cost, long-haul airline with Flight Attendant bases in John F. Kennedy International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. 


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
