2021 is already a record-breaking year

We’ve hit a record of organizing in our union — again. More workers have joined The NewsGuild in 2021 than in any year stretching back decades. 

So far more than 1,500 workers have joined our union and there are still five months left in 2021. 

“We are dedicated to organizing media workers and activists all across North America,” said NewsGuild President Jon Schleuss. “The time is now to unionize millions of workers and I am so proud of everyone who has joined the Guild in the last few years.”
