Labor Union News for New York City

LaborPress Magazine reports on union news throughout New York State, but covers national stories as well.  As a media outlet for unions and workers, it publishes articles on topics as varied as the 2016 presidential election,  training programs and organizing battles.  A review of a recent news summary reveals the LaborPress’s coverage. From its beginnings focusing on New York union news to its national coverage today, LaborPress has a readership that includes public employees, newspaper reporters, state legislators, union officers, and community leaders. 

The issue of LaborNews for January 5, 2014 illustrates the broad coverage of the magazine.  Featured stories include the passing of former Gov. Mario Cuomo, a new training center built  by  the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), the 2014 decisions issued by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), a new labor contract ratified by the Council of School Supervisors and Administrators,  unionization of Sodexo workers who staff the country’s college dining facilities, the tentative labor agreement reached by the NYC operating engineers and building owners, new rules from the NLRB that make it easier for workers to unionize, the role of Transit Workers Union members in keeping Citi Bike operating smoothly, and much more.

In addition to the broad coverage provided by LaborPress Magazine, a number of union-specific publications report on news about specific New York unions. There are publications for unions as diverse as:
