Contract negotiations with Blade and unions remain stalledWritten by Staff Reports | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Toledo Newspaper Guild Administrative Officer Lillian Covarrubias told Toledo Free Press in a June 24 email that contract negotiations remain stalled between The Blade and its unions.
“No new meetings have been scheduled. The Council of Newspaper Unions met last week with the top leaders of the Newspaper Guild and the Teamsters to help develop strategies for future meetings. To date, no WARN notice has been posted,” Covarrubias said.
WARN is designed to protect workers by requiring employers to provide 60-day notices of either closings or “mass layoffs.”
Blade President and General Manager Joseph Zerbey did not respond to a request for comment on June 24.
