Politico: Western Mass Newspaper Forms Union

By STEPHANIE MURRAY

LOCAL NEWSPAPER FORMS UNION — A daily newspaper and an alternative weekly in the western part of the state declared their intent to unionize yesterday, the latest papers to organize in a growing national trend among print publications.

Employees of the Daily Hampshire Gazette and the Valley Advocate, which share a building and an owner in Northampton, asked Newspapers of New England to recognize workers as the Pioneer Valley NewsGuild on Monday afternoon. (Disclosure: I worked for the Gazette as an intern, reporter and freelancer from 2016 to 2017).
