Source: Newspaper Guild of New York
Title: Newspaper Guild of New York Records
Dates [inclusive]: 1935-1998
Abstract: The Newspaper Guild of New York (The Newspaper Guild, Local 3) represents journalists, sales staff and technical workers in the print/online media in the New York metropolitan area. Among its members are reporters, photographers, editors, typographers, commercial artists, technicians, accountants, mail-room and circulation staff, independent translators, and staff members of non-profit organizations. The Guild has been active in campaigns to defeat racial and sex discrimination, to promote worker safety, and to provide job security in an industry that experienced rapid automation and other technical/structural changes. The Collection includes administrative and general files of the NGNY (including material on its parent union, The Newspaper Guild), and extensive files on individual "shops" or branches (generally associated with a specific employer or publication). Shop files document bargaining, contracts, grievances and arbitrations, social and political activities of shops, elections, the work of officers and staff, and changing technology, working conditions and industry trends.
