Guild seeks to scare up raises
Guild members today delivered the Halloween card our members signed last week.
Inside, the card said “Another year without raises? That’s scary!”
The presentation to Publisher George Hearst was the latest step in our mobilizing effort to make clear that a contract and raises are desired by all members. It’s not just the Guild leadership that wants to see us get a contract that offers flexibility on layoffs and outsourcing without giving the company the blank check it has demanded.
Members Cathleen Crowley and Bill Federman delivered the card to the publisher on behalf of the membership and spoke to Hearst about the members’ support for a fair settlement.
