Negotiations with Gannett Go Federal

The Indianapolis News Guild will enter federal mediation with The Indianapolis Star next month, reports Editor & Publisher.

The Guild has filed a National Labor Relations Board complaint claiming the company threatened to issue its final offer if the union did not agree to certain bargaining dates.

The Guild also claims, "Gannett is claiming economic needs without providing proof, and they have so far failed to provide any relevant information to us regarding their justification for a double-digit percentage pay reduction".
