Around 700 Washington Post employees walked out on Thursday, engaging in a 24-hour long strike in protest of stalled union contract negotiations and announced layoffs. 

This is the first walkout at the outlet since the 1970s, according to union leadership. The Washington Post Guild posted on X that employees of the outlet are protesting “because our company is refusing to bargain in good faith and breaking the law.”
