Editor’s note: In July, IndyStar workers delivered a letter to management asking them to come to the table with a fair deal on our health care. After two session of negotiations, we are still waiting for Gannett to deliver a commitment to mitigate the effects of changing our health care. (You can read more about this here and here.)
Gannett also continues to withhold merit raises from its dedicated workers.
After hearing about our situation, some public figures have offered their support to IndyStar journalists and workers. The following is one of those messages.
“A fundamental part of our democracy is the level of accountability in which elected officials are held to by local journalists.
The Indy Star has done a phenomenal job reporting on local and statewide stories over the years and keeping Hoosiers informed on various issues from top to bottom.
The journalists at the Star deserve to be fairly compensated for the irreplaceable work they do on behalf of our city and state, and I proudly stand with them.”
Indiana State Senator Greg Taylor (D-Indianapolis)
Sen. Taylor joins Mayor Joe Hogsett, Deputy Mayor of Noblesville Steve Cooke, the head of the Indiana AFL-CIO, and a former IndyStar editor in supporting IndyStar workers as we fight for a fair deal on health care.
