Digital First Media workers launch coordinated contract campaign

Today is the launch of a national, coordinated campaign to win fair contracts with wage increases for the nearly 1,000 Guild-represented employees of Digital First Media.

Alone, we have made little headway in our contract negotiations. But this campaign is different – it builds on the strength of the 13 bargaining units at DFM publications and online news sites across the country.

Our success relies on your attention in the coming weeks as we reach out and escalate our campaign efforts – and of course, your active participation and feedback along the way. Beginning today, you can find ongoing news and information on the bulletin boards and on this campaign’s website:

For now, we are asking the following:

* Please read the story describing our “News Matters” campaign, described at this site: as well as the flyer announcing the campaign.

* Please attend the meeting(s) that will be called by your unit leaders.

Questions can be directed to your unit co-chairs or Guild staff reps Carl Hall or Kat Anderson (415) 421-6833.
