Employees at Star of Fort Worth Telegram are considering forming a union, as part of News Guild, the largest union of journalists and communication professionals in the United States and Canada.
This makes the Star-Telegram the second newspaper to unionize in Texas, after Dallas Morning News.
“Star-Telegram reporters are dedicated to Fort Worth and deserve to be heard in decisions that impact our newsroom,” FWST reporter Luke Ranker said in a Release. “The NewsGuild will help us defend our interests and those of our community, and will ensure a strong legacy for the future.”
According to the statement, a union would advocate wage increases, adequate protections against layoffs, parental leave and other benefits.
“The past two decades have been difficult,” the statement said, citing “several rounds of layoffs and buyouts” that have diminished their ability to fully cover Fort Worth.
The release includes a list of 23 employees such as Silas Allen and Gordon Dickson.
the Dallas Morning News vote 84-28 in favor of unionization on October 16.
the Fort Worth Star Telegram union organizers have called on McClatchy Company, their parent company, to voluntarily recognize the Fort Worth NewsGuild. The recognition of the union allows the voluntary start of contract negotiations.
McClatchy already has a number of syndicated publications, including the Miami herald, Sacramento Bee, and the Idaho statesman.
McClatchy was recently acquired by Chatham Asset Management, a New Jersey hedge fund, six months after McClatchy filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
