Democrat & Chronicle Walkout Protest

Written by on June 6, 2023

Yesterday, workers walked off the job at the Democrat & Chronicle newspaper. Reporters and photographers joined Gannett employees across the country in a one-day walkout to protest slow-moving contract talks.

Justin Murphy, vice chair of the Newspaper Guild of Rochester, stated: “We’re hoping to dramatize to the shareholders the need for an immediate change in the direction of the company. We, the employees, the journalists who do the actual work that keeps this company afloat, we have lost all confidence in (Gannett CEO) Mike Reed as the leader. He’s proven again and again that the only idea that he has to lead this company is to cut and to cut and to cut again and minimize expenses wherever he can.”
