leave a comment »

Journal Sentinel Inc. officials and the union representing more than 200 employees in the company’s newsroom failed to agree on new compensation terms this week, according to Milwaukee and Southeastern Wisconsin Business News.

According to sources involved with the negotiations, the company proposed wage cuts. The leaders of the Milwaukee Newspaper Guild Local 51 will take the company’s latest offer to the full membership of the union for consideration on April 23, sources said.

One source described the company’s latest offer as “pretty lousy.”
If the members of the Guild vote against accepting the offer, the company has indicated it may initiate involuntary layoffs.
