Guild membership meeting postponed due to blizzard
New Date: Tuesday, February 3, 2015
The Newspaper Guild of New York's annual winter meeting that had been scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015 has been postponed due to the impending severe winter storm. Instead, it will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 3.
Please make every effort to attend as the Guild is amid a swirl of contract campaigns, continued uncertainty in the news business and a decision by our parent union to change its name.
Contract campaigns include a major dispute with Time Inc. management, which has posted work rules. We are also seeking contracts at the Jersey Journal, Reuters and Consumer Reports, and responding to layoffs at The New York Times and El Diario. In addition, delegates to the sector conference of our parent union last week voted to change its name from The Newspaper Guild-CWA to The NewsGuild-CWA (dropping “paper”). Our local is considering a similar move.
You’re invited to hear and take part in discussions of these and other matters. You'll hear reports from Guild President Bill O'Meara, Secretary-Treasurer Peter Szekely and Local Chairperson Karen Rohan.
DATE: Tuesday, February 3, 2015
TIME: 6:15 p.m. EST
PLACE: Guild office, 1500 Broadway Suite 900 (northeast corner of Broadway and 43rd Street)
REFRESHMENTS: Will be provided.
OPEN TO MEMBERS ONLY: Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
