St. Paul Pioneer Press union members asked to trade pay cuts for layoff ban

MinnPost.com
The Guild tells members that if they don't accept management's cost-cutting demands, "25 to 26" workers will be laid off immediately. (MediaNews owns the Pioneer Press.) Under the deal that union members will vote on Jan. 22, "we will be taking home 9-10 percent less this year than called for in the contract. But it’s also true that we will be working 8 percent fewer hours." In exchange, the staff gets a no-layoff pledge through January 2011. || At the Star Tribune... A message from the editor.
