Tell VTDigger.org: Fair Contract Now!
The VTDigger Guild unionized over a year ago in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic to make sure VTDigger.org, Vermont’s largest news outlet, could become a model of sustainable, high-quality, nonprofit journalism by protecting its most valuable asset: Its employees.
Since then, we’ve been hard at work at the bargaining table negotiating for better working conditions for our underpaid, overworked members. But so far, management hasn’t budged on key provisions we’re asking for: Better vacation and leave, a livable wage, and just cause for terminations.
Tell VTDigger management you want us to get a fair contract. We’ve crafted a sample email that you can send to our editor-in-chief and members of the Vermont Journalism Trust board.
