It's Been Two Months. It's Time To Recognize Us ✊ Apr 3
We came to the table today ready to meet with BuzzFeed execs about finally recognizing our union. Five minutes after the meeting was scheduled to start, they told us they weren’t going to show up.

I still remember how I and so many of my colleagues felt a year ago - depressed, demoralized, disrespected. Today, I'm so glad is behind us fighting for a fair contract.

If you’re wondering how a media union can be used to study and combat pay inequality in your newsroom (or other place of biz), folks, the DMs are open.

It’s in the courthouse press room, too! This is where I cover Smollett, R Kelly and a hundred other cases — for a paper where women in each job category make on average less than men. is working hard to fix that.

Today is (also , in Chicago). Women still make less than men, on aggregate, for doing the same work. I think, and thinks, that's wrong and are both working to correct this bi-weekly injustice. More here: <thread>

It’s Equal Pay Day! Women in the U.S. must work until April 2 to catch up to men’s earnings in 2018 — 3 extra months. ⁦⁩ is fighting for people doing the same job with the same experience to have equal pay.

One of the top priorities of is pay. We suspected pervasive salary inequity throughout our newsroom. We demanded the numbers. Now we know. In every job category at Chicago Tribune, women make less on average than men.

Pay discrimination is a widespread problem in the American workplace and news organizations, including , are no exception. But we're fighting back by organizing, which gives us access to pay data so we can demand equal pay in our contract.

Today is Equal Pay Day. April 2 was chosen because that's how long it takes women to catch up to men's earnings for 2018. We believe that women who do the same jobs, with the same experience as men, deserve the same pay. Find out more here:

If you're a Chicago reporter making $62,000 per year, you make what a Sun-Times copy clerk made in the Reagan administration.

Chicago Tribune followers will note that Oaktree Capital was also a big player in our own messy ownership history.

Working for Tribune last year, I made ~$45,000 according to my W-2 for designing countless newspapers, editing a whole lot of copy and making style guides. So, this is cool.
