Union Representing Employees at The Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com Votes to Authorize Strike Preparations

Members of the union representing employees at The Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com voted on June 3, 2015 to authorize strike preparations as ongoing contract negotiations have yielded no breakthroughs. The vote - 263-19 in the main unit and 24-7 in the unit representing Philly.com employees - authorized the executive board of the Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia to plan for a strike by 445 employees at the city's two newspapers and their companion website. Philadelphia Media Network, which operates all three news outlets, has stated that in the event of a strike, it will continue publication. In a statement released after the vote was tallied, PMN said: the negotiators remain hopeful that, with the assistance of the federal mediator, continued talks will result in an agreement before the contract extension expires on June 27, 2015, and that the Guild will soon join the 12 other PMN unions who have reached or are very close to reaching contract agreements. Teamsters Local 628 said that the members would stay on the job in the event of a Guild strike. The Guild's contract expired in February. A federal mediator has been involved in bargaining sessions since April. The company and the union have been unable to reach an agreement on three key issues: health-care costs, seniority protection, and merging Philly.com employees into the main union unit. The company and the union also have been unable to reach an agreement over seniority protection for members. Management wants more flexibility if it decides to lay off employees, regardless of how many years they have worked at the company. The union said it is open to saving younger workers, but with safeguards so older employees are not targeted. Another key disagreement in negotiations has been whether to provide Philly.com employees the same benefits as main unit employees. The company has offered to extend some of those benefits, but the union wants a full merger of the website's employees with the union's main unit.
