Reuters Vs. Newspaper Guild: Fight!

reuters-logo-171-061.jpgThe Newspaper Guild has filed a complaint with federal regulators accusing Reuters of wrongfully cutting the pay of 420 employees, the New York Times reports.

Reuters apparently informed employees on Jan. 19 that contract negotiations had stalled and so the company was imposing new terms, including an increase in the cost of healthcare and the number of hours needed to qualify for overtime, which would be, the guild says, equivalent to a 10 percent pay cut.

The guild claims that there was no such stalling, therefore, it’s illegal for Reuters to impose terms.

“They announced it in a memo to the staff without even telling us, when we weren’t even negotiating,” Bill O’Meara, president of the Newspaper Guild of New York, told Richard Pérez-Peña of the NYT.
