We are the Pacific Media Workers Guild, Local 39521 of The NewsGuild-Communications Workers of America. We represent more than 1,000 journalists and other media workers, union staffs and freelancers.

We are committed to quality journalism and language services, fair wages and benefits, secure employment, safe workplaces and educational resources for the next generation of journalists. We view it as a privilege to stand together in defense of our union’s core principles, and we invite you to join us.

We sponsor Bay News Rising, a mentorship program through which we organize student journalists in recognition of a growing need for trained coverage of social justice and labor movements — and to provide ongoing training, networking, mentoring and publishing for student journalists collaborating for the future of Bay Area journalism.
