ProPublica, a Journalism Nonprofit, Is Latest Newsroom to Unionize

From a Washington Post story by Will Sommer and Lauren Kaori Gurley headlined “ProPublica, lauded journalism nonprofit, is latest newsroom to unionize”:

Reporters at investigative journalism nonprofit ProPublica announced Wednesday they are unionizing, bringing an industry wave of labor organizing to a somewhat unexpected corner of the media world.

The announcement, timed to the 15th anniversary of when ProPublica began publishing, comes as its corporate peers are grappling with layoffs and cutbacks that have stoked employee discontent. By comparison, ProPublica, a donor-supported nonprofit that counted over $57 million in assets on its most recently available tax forms, has been comparatively insulated from the economic challenges of the industry.
