As we prepare for labor negotiations to resume Aug. 6-7, another opportunity is before you to show a united display of our presence … and would reinforce to the executives here in Indy and in McLean, Va. that Indianapolis News Guild 34070 is a force to be dealt with! PLEASE wear your lanyards, hats, red shirts and other red attire to show your support for the Guild and sit together as a group this Wednesday, July 22! Let’s plan on gathering at Tom Spalding’s desk at 2:50 p.m. so we can get good seats in time for Robert “Bob” Dickey’s 3 p.m. speech at the Star. It’s even more important that you show your colors than it was last week for Star Publisher Michael Kane’s presentation. Dickey is president of Gannett’s U.S. Community Publishing Division and the buck next stops with him!
Directions: Guild president Tom Spalding’s desk is in the business department. For those coming from the zones, the business department is on the second floor of the Star building and to the right past the mailboxes as you exit the employee entrance elevators. At 2:50 p.m. we will all take the stairs down to the meeting room in the basement, file in and sit together as a group (or fill in as many seats together as we can!)
