Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newsroom workers go on strike

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) — Workers in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newsroom went on strike demanding that the company reinstate the terms of its previous contract and return to the negotiating table.

The Pittsburgh Newspaper Union, which represents 101 workers, said its members began picketing outside the city’s North Shore newsroom on Tuesday and planned to continue the action Wednesday.

Guild members, who have been working without a contract since 2017, voted Monday to authorize an unfair labor practices strike against the company. of workers have quit their jobs.

The Post-Gazette said in a statement that it “will continue to serve Pittsburgh’s community, readers and advertisers even as work is interrupted.” said he was confident the company would win if it ruled on the charges against him.

The strike is the first large-scale newspaper strike in 30 years. WESA reported that in 1992, about 600 local members of Teamster, representing truck drivers and distribution route managers, went on strike against the Pittsburgh Press, which was eventually sold, Post Merged with His Gazette.
