The Hill’s staff members form union
Workers at The Hill, which provides policy and political news in Washington, D.C., have formed a union. The new group includes reporters, social media curators, designers, copy editors and other newsroom workers.
The new union’s stated aim is to secure equitable and transparent pay, access to affordable health care and to create a diverse and inclusive workplace.
A part of the Tweet reads:
“We believe that achieving these targets through a collective bargaining process will not only improve working conditions at The Hill, but will ultimately help us reach our institutional goals as a newspaper.
“With that in mind, we are requesting that The Hill’s management and our parent company, Nexstar Media Group, voluntarily recognize our union – a unit of the Washington-Baltimore News Guild, part of the Communications Workers of America – and negotiate a contract in good faith.”
