Description

Join writers from DNAinfo and Gothamist, along with elected officials and Writers Guild of America, East members and staff, at a rally on Monday, November 6, 2017 at 1:00 PM to fight for the unionized editorial employees at DNAinfo and Gothamist. On Thursday, the publications’ owner - right-wing billionaire Joe Ricketts - announced that he had shut down the popular local news sites and bragged that the employees were to blame for his decision because they exercised their right to unionize.

Shame on you, Joe! Don't blame your business woes on the people who work hard to report news that New Yorkers need. Don't try to score ideological points by pretending employees don't have the right to bargain collectively. Let's show people like Joe Ricketts that New York is a union town, and that independent journalism is alive and well.
