Dear Guild Members:
Unfortunately, yet another media company has decided that jerking our members around is how you show them how much you value them.
Today our fellow Guild members at the New York Times are showing their disgust with this tactic and standing up for themselves with a one-day strike.
Please join me in showing them Philly has their back at a virtual rally from 2 to 2:30 today.
And please, do not forget our striking colleagues in Pittsburgh, who are standing up for what’s right at great personal sacrifice.
