Hartford Courant Journalists to Unionize

HeadlineFeb 12, 2019

And journalists at Connecticut’s Hartford Courant—the country’s oldest continuously published newspaper—have announced plans to unionize. Staffers say the paper, which is owned by Tribune Publishing, has suffered from cuts to the newsroom and overall staff, and stagnant wages. In a statement, Courant journalists wrote, “Declining revenues and corporate self-interest—marked by decisions without regard for, or knowledge of, who we are and what we do—only translate to deepening cuts to our resources and standards.”
