Indianapolis News Guild Wins Greater Labor Protections in New Contract
Last week, members of the Indianapolis News Guild (TNG-CWA Local 34070), which represents journalists and photographers with the Indianapolis Star newspaper, reached an agreement with parent company Gannett.

“The biggest win is our economics package, which will benefit every member of our bargaining unit," said veteran photographer and TNG-CWA Local 34070 President Jenna Watson.
