Senator Markey Statement in Support of Boston Newspaper Guild

Washington (September 22, 2021) – Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement on negotiations between the Boston Newspaper Guild and The Boston Globe.

“I stand with members of the Boston Newspaper Guild and their fight to secure a fair labor contract,” said Senator Markey. “All of the workers at The Boston Globe and STAT News – from journalists, to security guards, to administrative and delivery staff – support the effort to produce the highest-quality journalism. These workers are ensuring a strong democracy, informed communities, and a healthy economy throughout New England.

“The guild members and their families deserve a fair contract now. I urge The Boston Globe management to negotiate and settle a fair contract with workplace protections for these workers without further delay.”
