Here’s what you need to know about last week’s negotiations

For the last few weeks, we’ve been asking you to support us as we prepared to return to the bargaining table with Gannett last week.

If you’re unfamiliar with our fight, you can read about how Gannett is paying less for Guild members’ health care than it is for other employees, or how the company is withholding merit raises to try and force us into signing a contract.

Here’s what you need to know about last week.

We did not reach an agreement. While last week’s meeting did not discourage us, we also were not able to reach an agreement.

We’ll be back at the table in early August. Gannett’s lawyers will return to Indianapolis so that we can once again attempt to find a resolution.

We still need your support. Dozens of IndyStar readers have shown their support. We can’t thank you enough, but we still need your voices.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Change your profile picture. 
  • Tell Gannett why they should give us a fair contract. You can tweet them @Gannett, or email our executive editor Ronnie Ramos ( to tell him why we deserve a fair deal. You can also tweet him @RonnieRamos and our company’s account @indystar.
  • While you’re at it, tell us what IndyStar means to you. Check out this handy survey.

And as always, thank you for your continued support. It means the world to us.
