Staffers At Hearst's 'San Antonio Express-News' Form A Union

Employees at the San Antonio Express-News and its online affiliate MySA have formed a union: The San Antonio News Guild, according to the Express-News and other publications.  

Owner Hearst Newspapers has declined to recognize the union, the San Antonio Current reports.  

The union is seeking to hold an election, and has filed with the National Labor Relations Board to that effect. 

The union now counts 46 employees. 

“The news industry is shifting so rapidly that newsrooms are always facing drastic changes to keep up, including layoffs,” Steven Santana says in a statement, according to the Current. “That’s why forming a union is necessary. We want us and future employees to have a seat at the table to help shape those changes and protect ourselves now and for years to come.”
