About Us

These are hard times for journalists. Our jobs are being cut, our standards compromised. It doesn’t have to be that way. Together, the members of the News Media Guild are working to bring the best of the past into the future.

The News Media Guild represents journalists, technicians, and support personnel at Associated Press, the Spanish-language EFE News Service, and United Press International.  Together, we bargain over wages and working conditions to secure quality journalism.

This Web site is your tool - to connect with other employees, discuss problems, seek advice, share ideas and information, form friendships and work together for a better future.

A note to our International Visitors: We are also partners with the International Federation of Journalists, which helps defend press freedoms around the world.  If you're a non-manager working for AP outside the U.S., you can participate in a special forum by signing up.
