Post Guild’s ‘Crowd-Sourcing’ Request From the Guild’s Bargaining Committee

-

First, we want to thank everyone who has responded on the Post’s proposal to have the option of ending health care insurance coverage for part-time workers. We plan to discuss this at the table Nov. 12, so there is still time if you would like to chime in.

Second, we want to reiterate our call to you to please join the union now if you haven’t already. Especially now that the Guild leadership and members of the bargaining table are engaged in talks, writing bulletins, analyzing company positions, we need people to do the right thing and step up to join as dues-paying members — and more than ever, we need those of you who are on our team to speak up and encourage your friends to do the same. It’s a good and honorable cause. It’s okay to talk to people about it.

Finally, we’re wondering: can you help us pinpoint examples of Post jobs that have been created or filled without the company advertising that those positions were open? The Post is required to post notices of vacancies or newly created positions, and first consideration for them is supposed to go to existing employees. We have been alerted to instances where this apparently has not happened.

If you can think of examples where jobs were created or filled without proper notices, please email Freddy Kunkle (goldstraw@comcast.net), fellow co-chair, commercial, Rocky Richardson (RichardsonStephen123@hotmail.com) or Guild staff rep Rick Ehrmann (rehrmann@wbng.org).
