Contract vote today

The Indianapolis News Guild vote will be held from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. today. We will count absentee and in-person votes and expect to have an answer by 8 p.m. tonight.The agreement, if ratified, would apply to about 170 hourly workers covered by the Indianapolis News Guild Local 34070, which includes reporters, photographers, librarians, copy editors, clerks; and to 17 maintenance workers also covered by the contract.

THE DEAL: The Guild negotiations committee, after nearly 10 months of off-and-on contract talks, reached a tentative agreement on a two-year contract that we agreed on Aug. 7 to take to duespayers for a vote on Aug. 25. It is important to emphasize that we feel that it is the “best deal” that could be reached at this time. It isn’t a great package, but it’s the one that does the least amount of damage.

PLEASE DO YOUR PART AND VOTE! AND SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT GETTING TO THE POLL LOCATION, 325 N. Delaware, across from the Star’ parking garage in Downtown Indy!
