Arizona Republic Staff Vote To Unionize

On Thursday, Arizona Republic newsroom staff voted 64-30 in favor of unionizing. While the union might be “here to stay,” the vote is expected to expedite the demise of the publication.

According to KJZZ, Arizona Republic’s management warned staffers earlier this month “that any move to unionize actually could lose them some of their current benefits.”

The KJZZ article referred to a memo sent out to employees in which they were advised that “Bargaining remains a two-way street, the company can make demands for concessions as well.”
