Below is a message that Texas Tribune CEO Sonal Shah sent to staff today.
A group of colleagues has shared with us their intent to form a Texas Tribune union.
Our response is simple. If Tribune employees want to be represented by a union, we will respect their right to representation.
We will now start the process of working through the details of this request. When completed, we will respect the employees’ decision. I do want everyone involved to understand there is a legal process, and it will require some time. We respect our colleagues’ right to collectively bargain.
