On Wednesday, September 27, just after 5 p.m., an elated Dawn Hobbs announced the result of the News-Press staffers calls to unionize: It was a resounding 85 percent "yes," with 33 newsroom employees voting to be represented by the Teamsters in hopes of re-establishing journalistic ethics at the embattled paper.


Although six did vote against unionizing--their names were not announced or known--it seemed the major faces of the paper were smiling in glee at the news, from Starshine Roshell and Melinda Burns to Barney McManigal and Thomas Schultz. More news and photos to come soon on this developing story.
