An Albany Newspaper Guild membership meeting has been called for 6 p.m. Monday January 17, 2022 to vote on an enhanced severance package for the Advertising Art Department and other departments at the Times Union.
The local Executive Board recommends approval. The News Guild-CWA Sector Contracts Committee has approved the terms.
The package for advertising art call for severance pay, equivalent health insurance and pension credits.
The other package calls for improved severance payments, an equal amount of health insurance.
In both cases health insurance coverage may be taken in coverage or in a negotiated amount of cash; unemployment will not be contested; signing of a separation agreement is required and accumulated benefits will be paid.
The membership meeting will be held via Zoom due to the high number of positives COVID-19 cases in the Capital Region.
