Journalists at the Reporter-Herald in Loveland, Colo., voted to join the NewsGuild-CWA Local 37074 on Tuesday, becoming the first union-represented newsroom in the state since the 1940s.
"This was a major victory for the communities we cover, whose access to great local news will be far more secure moving forward. All of us love what we do, and we look forward to bargaining for greater job security, better wages, and other protections as soon as we can set a date," they said.
