Bargaining team makes progress

The Albany Newspaper Guild negotiating team reports that substantial progress was made during a two-hour off-the-record bargaining session with the Times Union on Monday, July 8, 2024.

Details of the talks cannot be disclosed due to the agreement that the talks are off-the-record in order to hold frank discussions between our union representatives and the company’s team.

Local President Ken Crowe, Vice President David Johnson and Chief Steward Wendy Liberatore met for several hours before and after negotiations to discuss the bargaining.

Our negotiating team members agreed that progress was made and they are hopeful that additional strong advances will be made when the two sides reconvene on July
29 and 30.

The Times Union was represented by Publisher George Hearst and Chief Financial Officer Andy Lennartz.
