Daily Hampshire Gazette, Valley Advocate Staff Petition To Form Labor Union

Updated at 5 p.m.
Staff at the Daily Hampshire  Gazette and Valley Advocate are taking steps to form a labor union. It'll be called the Pioneer Valley NewsGuild.

Brenda Nelson, the Gazette’s librarian.:
We want to see our beloved news organization stay strong and vibrant for years to come. 
However, a series of decisions by management, made suddenly and without consultation with workers, have raised serious doubts about whether or not this will happen. “No one is asking us our thoughts or opinions on how we operate right now.” said Brenda Nelson, the Gazette’s librarian. “This union will let us be heard at the highest levels.”
