The NewsGuild-CWA has evolved since its genesis as the print journalists’ union in 1933. Since then, our unparalleled expertise in this rapidly changing industry, along with our uncompromising dedication to open and democratic leadership has augmented our membership with professionals from many new, diverse types of workplaces.
Today, the NewsGuild is not only the premier media union in North America. Membership today includes spoken-language and sign-language interpreters and translators; social justice workers; and non profit and public sector professionals. Together, we are building community, and an increasingly powerful union to confront the common challenges which face us.
