Indy News Guild 34070 announces officer team for 2010-13

Congratulations to the new slate of officers of the Indianapolis Newspaper Guild, who were elected today. The team of five ran unopposed. The volunteer, unpaid three-year terms begin July 1. Our responsibility is to represent the newsroom and building services units of The Indianapolis Star. Our primary goals are: Day-to-day advocacy of our 175 members; protect jobs; protect the contract; and, in 2011, restore wages lost last year when (under duress from Gannett) the union voted to accept a two-year contract that included a 10% pay cut and pay freeze.

The officeholders are:

  • Tom Spalding, president
  • Adam Yates, 1st vice president
  • Tania Lopez, 2nd vice president
  • Geoff Ooley, treasurer
  • Emily Kuzniar, secretary

At this time, the officers want to thank outgoing vice presidents Vic Ryckaert and DuJuan Carpenter for their terms of service, 2007-10. We’ll have more details in our next print Inkling due out in coming weeks.
