Guild officers and stewards will be meeting at 12:30 p.m. this Wednesday at the Musicians Hall to pick a suitable date to hold an “information session” as well as an election. We also have to establish how we’ll mail out absentee ballots to duespayers, since the election regarding Gannett’s two-year contract offer will likely be scheduled around the busy July 4 holiday, when several people will be out of town. All Guild officers are moving as swiftly but carefully as we can, given some legal requirements and logistical hurdles. You should know that the Guild crafted and assembled a 35-page contract proposal that, as of today, is now in the company’s hands. We want to ensure there are no misunderstandings prior to a vote.
