The News Media Alliance and the Stop Tariffs on Printers & Publishers (STOPP) Coalition have provided new ads for newspapers to run in their publications. The ads educate readers on the negative consequences of the recent tariffs imposed on Canadian imports of uncoated groundwood paper, which includes newsprint used by newspapers.
These tariffs, set by the Department of Commerce, can run up to 32 percent combined, and newspapers are already feeling the pain of the added costs and disruptions in supply.
An ITC investigation is now underway, but we need your help to get the word out about these unwarranted tariffs.
Run the Alliance and STOPP ads in your publications and encourage your readers to stand up to protect their access to news, as well as jobs in their own community.
