The newsroom staff of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette voted 88-31 last week to authorize union leaders to call a strike at the paper, the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh announced.

Authorization for a strike at the Post-Gazette must now be approved by the executive council of the local’s union, the NewsGuild, says the union. Approval there would then proceed to Communications Workers of America President Christopher M. Shelton, who has the final say for strike authorization.

Two other CWA unions at the newspaper, Pittsburgh Typographical Union #7 and Mailers Local M-22, representing about 40 office and production employees, have both unanimously authorized a strike, the union says.
