National Writers Union & Newspaper Guild End Huffington Post Boycott
By Jason Boog on October 21, 2011 5:15 PM

The National Writers Union (NWU)/UAW Local 1981 has ended its boycott of The Huffington Post.

The Newspaper Guild has also stopped the boycott, writing: “We have asked, from the beginning, that Arianna Huffington and her staff meet with us to discuss the need for a model that compensates journalists for their efforts. Such meetings have now taken place, and the company has publicly pledged to work with us to resolve our differences. We are pleased to see HuffPost leaders stating so clearly the importance of paid journalism, not only to our society as a whole, but to their own business model.”

The NWU will continue to grow its Pay The Writer! campaign to create better pay scales for online writers. The boycott began in the spring as Newspaper Guild and other groups called for a writers strike in the wake of The Huffington Post’s $315 million sale to AOL.
