CWA Launches Ad Campaign in Support of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Strikers

In the longest-running strike in the country, workers at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette have maintained their solidarity and their picket lines for more than 500 days. Strikers from CWA Locals 14827, 14842, and the Pittsburgh NewsGuild (TNG-CWA Local 38061), with support from striking Teamsters and PPPWU workers, launched an advertising campaign this week that will tell the story of journalists, production, advertising, and delivery workers fighting to provide award-winning local journalism to the people of Pittsburgh.

The ad campaign will air on digital and streaming platforms, radio, and billboards across the city, sharing the stories of workers who have been fighting for a fair contract since 2017 and have been denied pay raises since 2006. Courts have found that the Post-Gazette has been bargaining in bad faith for years and has violated the law by unilaterally cutting off the workers’ healthcare.

The Post-Gazette has had the ability to settle the strike at any time, simply by complying with the law, as ordered by the courts, and through NLRB settlements. The Post-Gazette’s refusal to negotiate a fair contract deprives the city of local journalism and information.
