Newsworkers Unite: Labor,Convergence,and North American Newspapers / Edition 232by Catherine McKercher
Pub. Date: 09/15/2002
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
In the mid-1990s, the Newspaper Guild, driven by the concept of labor convergence, merged with the much larger Communications Workers of America (CWA). Some breakaway Canadian chapters of the Guild joined the Communications, Energy, and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP), a union similar to the CWA. McKercher (journalism and communication, Carleton U., Canada) examines both of these phenomena, arguing that the merging (or convergence) of these unions was a rational and proper response to the mega-mergers going on in the telecommunications and media industries.
