Pittsburgh Post-Gazette journalists union issues 'no confidence' vote to management

by Ryan Deto

The Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh today voted to issue an official statement of “no confidence” against Pittsburgh Post-Gazette executive editor Keith Burris, publisher John Block, and the paper’s owner, Block Communications. In a press release, the guild, which represents 140 journalists who work at the P-G, said it was compelled to act in response to management’s “escalating and unconscionable treatment of employees, union members, and managers alike.”
