Members of the Pittsburgh NewsGuild (TNG-CWA Local 38061) and CWA Locals 14842 and 14827, along with members of Teamsters Local 205/211 and Pressmen’s Union GCC/IBT Local 24M/9N, have been on strike for over 14 months, fighting for fair working conditions at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. For yet another holiday season, these brave strikers are maintaining their picket lines and their solidarity during the longest-running current strike in the U.S.

In Pittsburgh, dozens of supporters came together to raise funds to support the strikers and their families with a ‘Tis the Season for Solidarity bake sale, sponsored by United Steelworkers (USW) Local 3657’s fundraising and organizing committees along with USW District 10. Supporters across the country have shown their solidarity by sharing messages of support and purchasing holiday gifts from the Strike Santa registry.

You can help the strikers and their families find a little joy this season by donating a gift from the Strike Santa registry. Striking members listed gifts for their loved ones, hoping to spread some holiday spirit and normalcy.

“It is not easy to ask for things when you have been used to working for a living, and many of us are more accustomed to giving rather than receiving,” said Joseph Knupsky, a striking Sports Desk Editor. “However, this year, we find ourselves in a different situation.”

So, if you can, Post-Gazette strikers would be grateful for your donation and generosity in the spirit of the season.
