Welcome to LeeUnionFree.net, a resource for sharing information about the workplace philosophy of Lee Enterprises and why we believe that unions are not in the best interest of our employees or our mission of serving our communities.
This site is also intended as a resource for facts about The Newspaper Guild and its organizing attempts.
Throughout Lee, in all our newspapers and enterprises, we believe in:
We believe that union representation gets in the way of every one of those ideals.
For that reason, we believe that unions are not in the best interest of our employees, our customers or our company.
As a result of acquisitions in recent years, Lee has gained many fine employees who are represented by a bargaining agent, and we’re glad to have them in Lee.
Where union representation exists, we intend to honor agreements and negotiate in good faith. Elsewhere across our company, we hope you will join us in continuing to resist the introduction of unions as an unnecessary impediment to maintaining a creative, rewarding and successful workplace.
Thank you for taking the time to review information on this site. Please offer suggestions and check back for updates.
