L.A. Times


An official notice hangs in the L.A. Times newsroom to show that the employees have filed for an NLRB election.

An overwhelming majority of close to 400 newsroom employees at the Los Angeles Times signed cards authorizing union representation by NewsGuild-CWA.

The editorial staff requested voluntary recognition from management and simultaneously filed for an election with the NLRB. They have yet to receive a response from Tronc, their parent company.

"We're excited to take this step toward securing representation by the Guild and ensuring a seat at the table for our newsroom. We're asking management to voluntarily recognize our union so we can begin the collective bargaining process, but we've filed for an NLRB election to prevent any further delay. We're prepared to pull our election petition once management makes the decision to recognize our union," said Anthony Pesce, L.A. Times data journalist and member of the union's Organizing Committee.
