Newspaper Guild/AFL-CIO Agreement

By June 13, 2005General

Remember that AFL-CIO President John Sweeney announced layoffs of a third of the staff, or more accurately, had the layoffs announced on a day when he was in Paris. Recall, too, that the staff put up a stink, charging, among other things, that the layoffs fell disproportionately on seniors an people of color.

Thanks to several different blog readers, here’s a link to the agreement between the AFL-CIO and the Newspaper Guild, which represents AFL employees, governing early retirement, severance and buyouts. Makes for some interesting reading.
