New York’s new unionization movement

"Organizing in newsrooms is happening across the country, but between local and national outlets located in New York, the Empire State is where a lot of the action is happening. Schleuss said the local NewsGuild of New York has added about 1,800 members since 2019.That includes the Daily News, which has reunionized after its union representation crumbled in the ’90s. Some campaigns have gone more smoothly than others. Members of the New Yorker Union and two news unions under Condé Nast protested outside Anna Wintour’s Manhattan townhouse last year during a tense round of negotiations. The New York Times has been locked in a fight with unionized workers. About 1,300 employees at the Times are already unionized with the NewsGuild, while the New York Times Tech Guild, a group of over 650 software engineers and other workers, is in the process of a union election. The NewsGuild filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board last month, alleging that the Times is trying to influence the Tech Guild election by only offering three new paid holidays to employees who are not unionized." https://bit.ly/33I9iM7

Starbucks, newsrooms and farms are some of the places where organizing is beginning to take hold.

Repost @meredithunion:

Two hundred of us got laid off by @dotdashmeredith today.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This morning, with less than an hour’s notice, Dotdash Meredith announced the closure of @entertainmentweekly print magazine and the layoff of 17 valued colleagues, including nine members of our union.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The company conducted the layoffs in a rushed and disrespectful fashion unbefitting of the long and dedicated service the workers provided to the publication.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It is not clear that there was any good reason for these layoffs at all. Dotdash Meredith has the resources to keep these people employed or pay them a fair severance—they spent $2.7 billion to buy Meredith in October, and Barry Diller’s IAC, Dotdash Meredith’s parent company, recorded hundreds of millions in profit in 2021.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
None of the journalism that makes @neilvogel proud would be possible without our and our coworkers’ dedicated labor. The future of Dotdash Meredith is one where workers thrive and have a voice at the table; not one where workers are at the mercy of management’s arbitrary decisions.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Dotdash Meredith’s conduct today is consistent with how the company has behaved since we formed the broader @meredithunion nearly one year ago. Management has steadfastly refused to cooperate with us or respond meaningfully to our bargaining demands. This is no way to respect the workers who have made the company’s products as valuable as they are.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today is a reminder of why we fought so hard to form our union. When our bosses make us feel small, we lift each other up. We stand with our union colleagues and will continue to fight for them. It’s time for the company to do the right thing and bargain fairly with us at the table.⁣

We just love how it sounds: largest union of tech workers with bargaining rights in the country 😎✊💥 #1u @nytguildtech

This week, the NLRB decisively rejected Times management’s efforts to exclude workers and backed the Tech Guild’s definition of which workers would be eligible to vote, including software engineers, data analysts, project managers, product managers, and designers.

Ballots for the election will be mailed to workers beginning on January 24 and will be counted between February 28 and March 7.

Once certified, the Times Tech Guild would be the largest union for tech workers with bargaining rights in the country. The unit is represented by The NewsGuild of New York.

Wirecutter Union Reaches Deal on First Contract With the New York Times After Black Friday Strike

“For two years, we fought for wages and benefits that match the value we bring to Wirecutter and the New York Times, we fought for policies that are fair and equitable, and for improvements to our working conditions that allow us to find and retain the most talented journalists,” says Nick Guy, Senior Staff Writer. “Our union committed to these principles and organized to achieve 100% participation in a strike during our busiest time of the year. I couldn’t be prouder to stand alongside my coworkers as we ratify this contract.”

We are the 7 editorial workers who produced 5 beautiful issues of @AyeshaCurry's wellness magazine @sweetjuly, which we were required to work on *in addition to* our day jobs at @Shape_Magazine without any additional compensation from @meredithcorporation. None at all. 

On Nov. 16th, we were laid off and are now being thrown off medical coverage—during the ongoing pandemic. They continue to refuse to pay us for the extra work we did in the past.

We know worker exploitation and unpaid labor are not @AyeshaCurry’s values. So why won’t she use her platform to speak out publicly in support of us, the workers who toiled long nights and weekends to make her vision of @sweetjuly into reality? 

Will you make sure @MeredithCorporation and @AyeshaCurry hear us loud and clear? Pay us what we’re owed—375 hours of work each. Repost the graphic on the last slide and stand with us. 

Solidarity forever,

"The engine that keeps this building standing is right here on these streets. We will not get distracted, we will not waiver, we will continue to fight for what is fair, what is equitable and what is good for the workers."

The Times is not off the hook. This Black Friday through Cyber Monday, pledge to Boycott Wirecutter if the workers still don't reach a fair contract with management ➡️ bit.ly/boycottwirecutter

Blackwood Regarding Covid 19. The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in the Philippines is, according to a post copied here, currently doing trials to see how effective VCO is in combating the covid 19 virus, but have noted promising results. VCO is natural and totally safe. It is avaliable to most people at a local market under a common name. Please read, about 69 hospital patients and a number of jail workers treated with VCO. These were not clinical studies but just a treatment which provided promising data. Studies have proven that VCO has antimicrobial and immunomodulatory properties. Read on as. later in this post, you will see the promising results of those treated with VCO and just what VCO is. It at least appears it may possibly help protect one from the virus. Being a Navy Veteran of the Vietnam war it appears to me this could very well help shipboard virus problems. Later working in a hospital setting I also belive it is a shame it is not being widely tried in that setting. Everybody should possibly be using this. Please read the following post. Copy and paste or forward to whoever needs to see it. - - - - Covid 19 is a lipid (fat) encapsulated virus. This natural substance when made available in the body, migrates to and is absorbed into the lipid encasement destabilizing it and thus destroying many viruses and other similar microorganisms. This process is effective even against supergerms resistant to antibiotics. The MCFAs in coconut oil kill all varients of the flu virus because of the way it works and therefore, if it is effective against covid 19, one would expect it to be effective against all stains or varients of the virus. MCFAs (medium chain fatty acids) such as Lauric Acid (C-12), Capric Acid (C-10), Caprylic Acid (C-8), and the monoglycerides of these MCFAs such as monolaurin, monocapry and monocaprin are known to be highly antimicrobial and this is one way it may be done. All that were mentioned here are involved in what follows. Please read - - - -It looks like there is a distinct possibility protection and possibly a cure for Covid 19 may be avaliable. Governments around the world should be promoting this. --- Ongoing trials by DOST reveal virgin coconut oil’s promising results on treating, managing COVID Virgin coconut oil can possibly help prevent, manage and treat COVID-19 patients, research says. ANCX | Aug 03 2020 The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is currently doing trials to see how effective VCO is in combatting the COVID-19 virus, but have noted promising results. As trials for coronavirus vaccines are still underway, we are left with no choice but to simply wait and do the necessary safety precautions—wear a mask and a face shield, wash our hands thoroughly, and observe physical distancing. But what if we add another to-do? According to Dr. Fabian M. Dayrit, president of the Integrated Chemists of the Philippines, we’ve got something locally available that can help prevent, manage, and treat novel coronavirus patients—virgin coconut oil (VCO). The doctor has been doing his studies on coconut oil for over 15 years. “There are two general strategies against viral diseases. First, to develop drugs which are directly antiviral, and second, to use the body’s own immune system to defend [itself] against the virus,” noted a research by Dr. Dayrit and Dr. Mary T. Newport, a neonatologist, international speaker, and an advocate for using coconut oil. According to Dr. Dayrit, there are enough studies to prove that VCO has antiviral and immunomodulatory properties. Upon ingestion, coconut oil produces lauric acid and monolaurin, two compounds which have been known for many years to have significant antiviral activity. Dr. Jose Mondejar, medical director Equilibrium Integrative Health Clinic, who had reached out to Dr. Dayrit regarding his VCO studies, gave the oil to 69 residents of Sitio Luz, Barangay Zapatera. They were among the first COVID-19 patients of Cebu City in April. They initially took 1 tablespoon of VCO twice a day, which later increased to thrice a day, he said in an interview with DZMM. Within 2 weeks, 45 of the 69 patients tested negative, while 24 did not develop worse symptoms. Similarly, VCO is also credited for keeping the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) COVID-free. After taking VCO starting May 15, 7 jail workers with COVID-19 tested negative for the pathogen within a week. Three other workers tested negative within 8 days, he said. The jail has not tallied any new case of COVID-19 since. Dr. Dayrit, who’s also a professor at the Ateneo de Manila University-School of Science and Engineering's chemistry department, clarifies that these are not clinical studies. “They were invited to treat people, not to do a study. What we did was to gather data so that it can be explained more rationally. In 30 days, [the confirmed COVID positive patients] were all eventually negative,” said Dr. Dayrit. - - - Although what you just read used virgin coconut oil most types of coconut oil have the same properties and should get the same results. Please consider the fact that 7 jail workers with Covid tested negative within a week and 3 others within 8 days after taking coconut oil with no subsequent new cases. It at least appears coconut oil may possibly protect against covid 19. Consider that 45 of 69 Covid hospital patients were negative in two weeks and the rest within 30 days. One can cook with coconut oil. It does not create body damaging free radicals like most cooking oils and the saturated fat is of a type good for the body. ADDITIONALLY Coconut oil requires no insulin or bile to metabolize providing instant energy which is really good for athletes. It detoxifies the body of many deadly toxins, is highly anticancer and greatly improves nutrient absorption helping to alleviate malnutrition. The medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in coconut oil kill many deadly viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites yet is totally safe. The MCFAs in coconut oil kill candida which is normally held in check by friendly intestinal bacteria but runs amok when antibiotics kill off the friendly intestinal bacteria. Coconut oil does not harm the friendly intestinal bacteria and should be taken in conjunction with any antibiotics. Everybody should probably be taking coconut oil. Insidently 3 oz of coconut milk is equivalent to one tablespoon of coconut oil. Check out the group site"Coconut Trivia" and Go to Www. Coconut Research Center. Org (no spaces)

I commend the United States Congress for officially passing legislation in the House of Representatives, and previously last year in the Senate unanimously, designating lynching as a hate crime under federal law in the United States of America. 65 years after the brutal lynching of 14 year old, Emmett Till in Mississippi. I call our United States of America President Donald Trump to officially sign this bipartisan bill into law. Let us all remember throughout the entire landscape of America, and even the world, the efforts anti-lynching activist, Ida B. Wells, and so many others who fought long and hard against blatant racism, classism, and sexism that sadly still exists in our world today in 2020. DON’T NORMALIZE THE LYNCHING NOOSE!!! DON’T DESENSITIZE THE MINDS OF THE MODERN DAY PUBLIC REGARDING THE TRUE MEANING OF THE LYNCHING NOOSE!!! THE LYNCHING NOOSE IS NOT A FUNNY JOKE “BACK TO SCHOOL NECKLACE”. HISTORY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF CLEARLY!!! THIS RACIST NOOSES DISPLAY BY A ROOSEVELT MIDDLE SCHOOL TENURED TEACHER & TENURED WORKER IS AGAINST THE LAW. THEREFORE REVOKE THEIR TEACHING LICENSES NOW: New York State law regarding racist nooses specifically states that anyone who “etches, paints, draws upon or otherwise places or displays a noose, commonly exhibited as a symbol of racism and intimidation, on any building or other real property, public or private, owned by any person, firm or corporation or any public agency or instrumentality, without express permission of the owner or operator of such building or real property.” is breaking New York State law regarding nooses and that is “aggravated harassment in the first degree is a class e felony.” WRITE, WRITE, WRITE New York State Education Department Office of School Personnel Review and Accountability (OSPRA) 89 Washington Avenue, Room 981-EBA Albany, New York 12234 CALL, CALL, CALL Phone: (518) 473-2998 FAX, FAX, FAX Fax: (518) 402-5940 EMAIL, EMAIL, EMAIL: [email protected] Pastor Arthur L.

Another group of editorial workers joins the labor movement, and I'm feeling all types of union pride. ✊
The News Guild should file a lawsuit against Trump siting Emanate Lawless Action: Reckless Endangerment Hate Speech. Based on his numerous occasions of using his position of authority as President of the United States to declare the press “the enemy of the people” and various other incidents of suggesting, condoning and praising violent acts. Imminent Lawless Action is the standard established by the United States Supreme Court in Brandenburg v. Ohio (1969), for defining the limits of freedom of speech, written or spoken. The Brandenburg test was established in Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 US 444 (1969), to determine when inflammatory speech intending to advocate illegal action can be restricted. In the case, a K*K leader gave a speech at a rally to his fellow Klansmen, and after listing a number of derogatory racial slurs, he then said that "it's possible that there might have to be some revengeance [sic] taken." The test determined that the government may prohibit speech advocating the use of force or crime if the speech satisfies both elements of the two-part test: 1. The speech is “directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action,” AND 2. The speech is “likely to incite or produce such action.”
