Contract talks resumed

May 20, 2010billrossInquirer

Dear Guild member,

Contract talks resumed today between the Guild bargaining committee and representatives for the new owners. The parties spent the bulk of the day analyzing a variety of prospects for reaching cost savings to ensure the health and vitality of our membership and the Inquirer and Daily News. The session was productive in large part because the new owners were able to bring company representatives and detailed financials for the first time. The next bargaining session is scheduled for June 3.

In solidarity,

Dan Gross, President,
Bill Ross, Executive Director, and the Executive Board of the Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia
