Staffing Up: Nonprofit Workers Join the Guild

September 2017 – The workers at several nonprofit organizations signed up to join The NewsGuild over the summer.

The staff of Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) requested and received voluntary union recognition in July. The eight new members have joined the Washington-Baltimore Local. The group is looking forward to continuing to build on the exponential growth of DSA over the past year and to advocate for a workplace where all workers are treated with dignity and respect.

The staff of Jobs with Justice Massachusetts won union recognition in June, becoming members of the Greater Boston NewsGuild-CWA Local 31032.

The seven-member staff of Neighborhoods Organizing for Change (NOC) won voluntary union recognition in September. The group is a grassroots organization dedicated to building power in under-resourced communities and communities of color across the Twin Cities.
