Support the ANG Urbanite newspaper workers
in their struggle for a fair contract
Noon, Thursday, 1 September
Oakland Tribune, 13th & Broadway
The Pressmen, Reeltenders and Mailers of the ANG Urbanite press plant, who print the Oakland Tribune, Hayward Daily Review and other East Bay papers, are working without a contract since February 7, 2005.
The workers are members of the Northern California Media Workers Union-Typographical Sector, CWA Local 39521. They are paid one of the lowest wages for pressmen in the Bay area. and ANG Newspapers refuses to give a fair wage increase. Healthcare costs will gut the workers' wages even further. ANG Refuses to give the Union-represented workers the same benefits they provide for their non-union employees at ANG, such as sick leave.
For seven months the Pressroom workders have worked hard as always, to produce the Oakland Tribune, Hayward Daily Review and other papers. They deserve fair compensation.
Please support the Pressroom workers at ANG, who have given years to the copany and have families to provide for, Join us on September 1 in front of the Oakland Tribune. They need the community's support.
