Money Talks: Media, Markets, Crisis.

The Laboring of Communication examines the transformation of work and of worker organizations in today's Information Society. It concentrates on the creative responses of the technical and cultural workers in the mass media. The book focuses on how traditional trade unions and new worker associations growing out of social movements are coming together to address the crisis of organized labor.

Newsworkers Unite : Labor, Convergence and North American Newspapers. by Catherine McKercher. Newsworkers' unions have struggled to protect their members and to reinvent themselves to keep up with the relentless pace of change in the workplace, and recent strikes such as that of Seattle newspaper workers highlight the ongoing challenges.

Labor Studies Journal . Labor Studies Journal. West Virginia University Press. Volume 29, Number 2, Summer 2004. McKercher provides a clear, representative case study involving Vancouver's Pacific Press to articulate this point. The unions, in response, concluded some important mergers, but left many potential ones undone owing to inter- and intra-union conflicts. McKercher does an admirable job of analyzing the complex "Canadian Question" and the factors that led to divergent labor movements in the United States and Canada.

Enriched by critical theory and the insights of cultural studies, and rooted in the power of historical explanation, this collection of classic and new essays contributes to the theory and practice of critical studies in communication, media, and journalism. The culture of communication constitutes an arena of practices with its own knowledge that bridges traditional academic disciplines and demonstrates the power of an interdisciplinary vision.

This is necessary because we have paid insufficient attention to labour in the communication, culture and knowledge industries.

Over the last forty years, new technology and rapid concentration of ownership have caused fundamental changes in North American newspapers. Newsworkers' unions have struggled to protect their members and to reinvent themselves to keep up with the relentless pace of change in the workplace, and recent strikes such as that of Seattle newspaper workers highlight the ongoing challenges. This engaging and accessible book focuses on how the Newspaper Guild―the main union for reporters and editors―adopted a strategy of labor convergence, joining with other media workers in the large and diverse Communications Workers of America union. McKercher also looks at the nationalism of Canadian newsworkers who instead joined an all-Canadian union similar to CWA and explores a case study on an extreme form of labor convergence in Vancouver. She concludes that while labor convergence is a work in progress, it is a promising development for newsworkers and their unions, helping them adjust to change and perhaps expand into new areas of the communication sector.
