WASHINGTON, D.C. — Printing and production workers at the Seattle Times newspaper, as well as some specialty printers in the Seattle area, have voted to merge with Teamsters Local 117.

They operate web and sheet-fed, offset, letterpress, and other specialty presses in shops like Urban Press in SODO and Capitol City Press in Olympia.
