An update on negotiations

Standard

We are still seeking an equitable contract with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette but it’s difficult when only one side is trying to negotiate. We met yesterday and made no progress.

In fact, in the 11+ months since our contract expired, the only proposals from the company have been concessionary — this despite the fact we made 10 percent more in 2006 and had twice the staff then AND BCI makes over $100 million profit each year.

We thank you all for your continued support and will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
