Capital Region residents are getting the message about the Times Union’s awful treatment of its employees in a whole new way.
An electronic billboard on I-90 contains three rotating messages from the Guild about our contract talks. The Guild also will be able to update and change the message as circumstances change. (This means if we settle the contract, we could put up a message asking people to subscribe again too.)
Two of the messages focus on the Company’s efforts to outsource any and all of our jobs. One says “Fair Contract Now” and encourages people to call Publisher George Hearst at 454-5555.
The billboard is part of the Guild’s ongoing efforts to inform and mobilize the community.
