Representation election set for Jun. 21

Newsroom employees at the Rockford Register Star and Freeport Journal-Standard are getting their chance to vote for Guild representation.

The National Labor Relations Board will supervise a representation election June 21 in the second floor conference room at Register Star from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Register Star and Journal-Standard employees are getting their chance to join their GateHouse colleagues at the Peoria Journal Star, the Pekin Daily Daily Times and the State Journal-Register in Springfield as members of the United Media Guild.

Guild representation has never been more important for journalists, especially those working for financially strapped companies like GateHouse.
