Guild Gets Involved With AP Internship Program

The News Media Guild, which represents employees of the Associated Press, has asked the AP to provide more information about the company’s internship program, which seems for all the world to be highly threatened, like possibly panda bear or white tiger levels of threatened.

The Guild asked the company for a list of employees who had gotten their start as interns (by all anecdotal accounts, there are a lot) and asked how much AP would save by eliminating the program.

“the Guild wants to bring participants to the table to talk about how it helped them,” said Martha Waggoner, bargaining committee chair.

The NMG and AP have been negotiating a new contract since October. The current contract expires today.
