Sarasota Daily Newspaper Staffers Seek to Join Union

Reporters, photographers and editors at the largest daily newspaper by circulation in the Sarasota-Bradenton market, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, could join a union by the end of September.

Newsroom personnel, according to a release from the union, The NewsGuild-CWA, signed cards stating their desire to unionize during a meeting Wednesday at the Tampa regional office of the National Labor Relations Board. The move will trigger an NLRB-monitored election by Herald-Tribune staffers in the next 20 to 40 days, the release adds. The NewsGuild would represent about 40 people in the newsroom.
