Check out the Valley Voice
The Valley Voice is the official strike publication of Newspaper Guild-Communications Workers of America Local 34011. We are reporters, photographers, copy editors, circulation district managers, delivery drivers and classified advertising sales people who seek a fair and equitable contract with Vindicator Printing Co.
The Valley Voice enables us to communicate with the public about our labor situation while mobilizing and encouraging our members to remain united.
We are a not-for-profit publication, not a commercial venture. The paper will be available during the duration of our work stoppage.
The journalism business has always seemed to me like one of the most obvious proofs for the proposition 'The boss needs you, you don't need the boss'. The nature of the business means that even the largest newspapers are in many respects effectively self-managed by the workers who produce and distribute them.
