Organizing Update

Nearly 90 percent of newsroom employees at Wirecutter, a product review and recommendation site published by the New York Times Company, announced this week that they are seeking to join NewsGuild of New York/TNG-CWA Local 31003.
In a mission statement, Wirecutter staff cited a desire to improve benefits, editorial independence, pay equity, diversity, and job security through collective bargaining.



Forty-one warehouse workers and "door knockers" at Aclara, a contractor for the utility company ConEd that installs Smart Meters on homes that can read meters electronically, have joined CWA Local 1109. These new members will join the existing contract of the Aclara installation techs that organized a union with CWA last year.
