Locals


The NewsGuild-CWA is composed of 46 U.S. locals and 17 Canadian locals, based largely on geography. Some locals represent the staff of a single publication, organization or company, while others represent the employees of multiple workplaces, with each considered a “unit” within the local.  

In keeping with the Guild’s democratic ideals, locals are self-governing  they determine their priorities, plan and execute their activities and elect their leaders. Each unit or local has its own collective bargaining agreement (contract with management) which they enforce. 

But unions are all about solidarity and the strength we get from working together. So although locals and units are self-governing, they can count on NewsGuild members and staff for support.
