Guild rejects Star contract

Dateline: Wed 01 Jul 2009

Here is the statement put out by Guild leadership last night:

"The membership of the Indianapolis Newspaper Guild voted 97-9 today to reject a two-year contract proposal originally put forth by the company April 15. Because this was not a last, final offer the union bargaining team looks forward to resuming negotiations with representatives of Gannett and reaching a deal that is acceptable to both the company and to the journalists and building services workers committed to making the Indianapolis Star the best it can be."

It will be interesting to see what happens next.
