The newspaper workers’ second week on strike began with renewed zeal and new methods of getting the message out.
While Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh members maintained a solid presence outside the Post-Gazette office on the North Shore, picketing during the second week also spread to a new location, Point Park University, and returned to the U.S. Steel Tower.
Outside of Pittsburgh, Gillian McGoldrick held her picket line at the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg and Ashley Murray was joined by a crowd of Communications Workers of America and NewsGuild allies during her demonstration at the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington.
Strikers engaged with the community by talking to passersby and handing out pamphlets outside a rally for Democratic U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman on Wednesday on the North Shore.
Post-Gazette officials were invited to bargain Friday outside of the newsroom on the North Shore, but none came to the table.
