News workers: 1949-75
The printing trades were the oldest continuous unions and some of the most militant during their long history.

Technology ultimately eclipsed the need for both the number of employees and types of jobs performed.

Columbia Typographical Union 101 was the oldest labor union in the city—tracing its roots back to 1815 and was at the forefront of the local labor movement for over 100 years often hosting the meetings of both the Knights of Labor and the American Federation of Labor. The union’s existence ended in 1986 when the International Typographical Union was merged into the Communications Workers of America.
