The news out of bargaining talks Wednesday remains serious.
Management said its target date for moving 36 circulation jobs to a third-party vendor is June 1.
Management also said GateHouse corporate is soon to release, as part of Project Apple, its plan for consolidating and/or outsourcing copy desk and pagination work – likely within the next few weeks. They talked about this in conjunction of eliminating 9 to 13 jobs within our newsroom.
We will be meeting with the company again Thursday and will provide another bulletin after those talks conclude.
Stay tuned as Guild leaders reach out to you directly to let you know what you can do.
