Smart Set is now a Union Shop!
Smart Set employees are now proud members of the TNG-CWA 37002, the second oldest Local in the Newspaper Guild, founded in 1933. The Newspaper Guild merged with the Communication Workers of America in 1997, and in 2000 merged with the Minneapolis-St. Paul Typographers Union, Local 30, to make one of three combined TNG locals that merged with a CWA Print Sector Local. Smart Set started in 1986 as a typesetting shop, so it is great to combine our 30+ year history of experience in typography, layout and print technology with the storied history of union organizing in the Twin Cities. Union membership underlies our commitment to providing living wages, health benefits and a rich, rewarding work environment, and we are proud to add the Union bug to any print job where it is requested.
