Pacific Northwest Newspaper Guild Union Strikes
The company will continue to publish newspapers, according to Seattle Times President Mason Sizemore. "We have a commitment to our readers and to this community," said Sizemore. "We will continue to provide news and information by publishing newspapers every day as we have for over a century."
Under an existing joint operating agreement with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, whose Guild-represented newsroom employees are also on strike, The Seattle Times Company will continue to handle advertising, printing and distribution for the P-I, which is owned by the Hearst Corporation.
The Seattle Times has communicated directly with subscribers, advertisers, carriers, vendors and others affected by the Guild strike to explain what they can expect during a work stoppage.
