A Small News Site Won a Pulitzer. Now It’s Unionizing.

From a Washington Post story by Will Sommer headlined “A small news site won a Pulitzer for its Brett Favre scoop. Now it’s unionizing.”:

Mississippi Today stunned the journalism world in May when it won a Pulitzer Prize for uncovering a $77 million state welfare scandal — a major accomplishment for a news organization founded just seven years ago.

Now staffers at the small nonprofit and its New Orleans-based sister site, Verite, will get another mark of an established newsroom: a union. On Thursday, staffers announced they are organizing through the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians.
