Editorial employees at the Bay Area News Group-East Bay (the Contra Costa Times, the Oakland Tribune, the Argus of Fremont, the Tri-Valley Herald, the Daily Review of Hayward, the San Mateo County Times and their affiliated newspapers) will vote this Friday, June 13 on whether to organize as a unit of The Newspaper Guild/Communication Workers of America.

If you recall, the former ANG Newspapers employees were Guild-represented, but the company -- Denver-based MediaNews Group Inc. -- withdrew its recognition of the unit when it consolidated those papers with the Contra Costa Newspapers last August. Now we're taking back our rights, and standing up for the future of our workplace and our industry.

The company is propagandizing our staff daily in advance of this election, and every bit of community support is helpful. If you believe in the importance of a free press covering your local communities with professional journalists earning living wages, please sign our petition to show your support.
