Event description

Description

Unionization of Newsrooms

The disruption in the news industry has prompted journalists, in both legacy and digital-native newsrooms, to organize for better conditions, job security and wages. While a few companies have taken extreme measures to avoid unionization others are at the bargaining table with a message that they're fighting for their very survival. How is the new push affecting journalism?


Moderator: Sarah Bartlett, dean of the Newmark J-School

Panelists:

Michael J. Lebowich, a partner and co-head of Labor-Management relations at Proskauer

Nastaran Mohit, director of organizing, NewsGuild of New York

Eric Morrow, news curation editor, BuzzFeed

Jennifer Perry, senior producer, Jezebel

Before the panel, Steven Greenhouse, former NYTimes labor reporter and author of Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present, and Future of American Labor, will talk briefly about larger forces in the economy and the workplace that are fueling a wave of unionization.
