A multimedia union

We represent more than 250 people who bring the news to print and online readers in the Providence, Worcester, Brockton, Pawtucket/Woonsocket, Pioneer Valley and Hartford markets, plus over 30 retiree members from various news outlets.

We sell the ads, distribute the papers, take the pictures, assemble the pages, post to the web and social media and write and edit the stories and videos that let the people of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut know what is going on in their world.

By protecting pay levels and benefits, we work to make sure our employers can attract and maintain quality work forces that will enable them adapt to and compete in all platforms for the delivery of news.

Unlike the out-of-town owners of our employers, we live in the towns where we work. We know our markets and we know the business. We care about our readers and we deliver it to our people and our towns. We look beyond the dollars and cents of  quarterly corporate bottom lines.

We care about how are members are paid, because that means they can continue to do jobs they love where they like doing it. We work to see the profits our outlets generate stay at home, so future employees and readers, will be able to enjoy a high level of excellence.
