TELL THE STREETWISE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO RECOGNIZE THE UNION!

On March 6, the Chicago Newspaper Guild Local 34071 sent a letter to StreetWise management asking that StreetWise recognize the Guild as the official bargaining unit for members of editorial and administrative staff.

Staff are seeking union recognition in light of labor and ethical violations that have been going on at the paper for years, especially in light of extreme retaliation that has occurred against staff members who filed grievances with the board of directors in January and February. A total of
five members of staff were fired or locked out, then
rehired, after filing grievances concerning mismanagement, harassment, financial misappropriations and indecent working conditions.

StreetWise management and the Board of Directors have so
far failed to respond to the union's request for
recognition. Please let the Board know that you support StreetWise staff's right to union representation and
negotiations for a fair contract.

Contact information for the board of directors is below.
