Gannett, the nation’s largest newspaper publisher, is receiving a warning from six senate democrats to stop preventing its journalists from three northern New Jersey newspapers from unionizing.

New Jersey’s Democratic Sens. Bob Menendez and Cory Booker, along with Democratic Reps. Bill Pascrell, Josh Gottheimer, Mikie Sherrill, and Tom Malinowski sent a letter to Gannett CEO Michael Reed.

In the statement, they asked him to stop blocking employees’ efforts at The Record and its online counterpart NorthJersey.com, The Daily Record, and New Jersey Herald, who want to unionize.

“We are concerned to learn that Gannett has engaged in anti-union campaigning and procedural delay tactics designed to exert influence and poison the union election process,” the letter stated in part. “Such union-busting is anathema to democracy and has no place in New Jersey, where there is a proud and long history of unionized labor.” Gannett didn’t respond to the government officials’ letter over its concerns that they’re preventing its journalist from unionizing.
