This is dad, Don Deal, a proud union pressman for 40+ years, most at the @DMRegister. When I shared our @azrepublicguild organizing efforts this summer, this was his reaction. "That's what gave me a good life" he said just now on the phone. Me, too, pops. That's why I voted yes.

Today, we're at the bargaining table fighting for strong Paid Parental Leave. Sadly, @Gannett is near the bottom of media companies for paid time off for new families. And in the last two years, the company has actually *CUT* benefits for new parents. 🧵

When news breaks, journalists at The Arizona Republic hop in our cars and head to every corner of our cities, state and beyond. Many of us drive thousands of miles each year. @Gannett wants to reimburse us at $0.31/mile. That was the IRS rate in 1999. How long ago was 1999? 🧵

An anti-vaccine website is distorting a study out of Vietnam to falsely claim vaccinated individuals carry more coronavirus than those who are unvaccinated. Get the facts. apne.ws/l2A3DGp

Fitzgerald continued: "I think I have to be respectful of that. Football is not one of those games you want to walk out there and play and not be fully engaged and ready to prepare and do the things necessary that you need to do.”

With the COVID surge, I wanted to know what is keeping so many from getting vaccinated. So I asked my brother, why won't you get a vaccine? It's a talk many family members are having (or need to have). His reasons. My responses. The Backstory. bit.ly/3jwmBCX @usatoday

"I said 'You dump it in the dumpsters, what you don't recycle for another show. I've watched you do it. I'm just asking, let me please repurpose it.'" Did a story on @MusicallyFed, a non-profit feeding the hungry with food the concert industry was wasting. azcentral.com/story/entertai…
