The Providence Newspaper Guild will have informational picketing from noon until 1pm on Monday, October 27th in front of the Providence Journal Building, 75 Fountain Street, Providence. The newspaper was purchased by LMG/GateHouse on September 3, and immediately 22 employees and members of the Guild were laid off. Approximately 40 more received offers of employment with a termination date of January or February. The Guild is protesting these job losses. Please join us in our fight.

On November 1st we will kick off our annual food and winter clothing drive. Last years effort was a great success with the winter clothing being distributed through RI Council 94 to needy/ homeless Rhode Islanders, and the non-perishable food we collected donated to the Peace Dale Johnny Cake Center.
Thank you for all your support last year! With you help I am confident we can do even better in 2014!
Beginning in November collection points will be established in each Department (specific sites to follow) as well as the Union Office (Roosevelt Hall) any items you can donate are greatly appreciated.
Also we will be collecting items (food/ winter clothes) at the 11/12 membership meeting.
Efforts like this are important first and foremost because of the support they provide to the community but also because it displays the positive impact members of Local 528 have on our community.
Thank you in advance for your help and support with this annual effort!
For additional info please contact the Union Office
