The Newspaper Guild was originally founded as a labor union for journalists in 1933. It’s original mission was to fight for higher wages and honesty in journalism. Today the organization has over 34,000 members (by their reporting) and chapters in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Members cover the gamut of media professions from reporters to photographers to mailroom and press room personnel.
