(Source: International Brotherhood of Teamsters press release, September 2, 2014)

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. Previously members of Graphic Communications Conference Local 767-M, the merger was approved by the members of Graphic Communications International Union Local 767-M and the members of Teamsters Local 117.

The members work in all craft and skill areas in the printing and publishing industry. Every day, they help print, produce and design numerous publications, including the Seattle Times. 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. They handle binding, finishing and shipping of finished products. They are also journalists, graphic artists, typesetters, sales people and support staff.
