Gannett continues to stall payments to former workers

The week of June 19th, our labor union hung up signs throughout The Commercial Appeal's offices that read "Shame on Gannett - Pay the Severance."
Tuesday (June27), we took all those signs down. The reason: we signed settlement agreements with the company Tuesday afternoon, ending a severance dispute that had lingered for more than two months.

***Please share this with your friends. This is important.***

All,
I'm the head of the Memphis Newspaper Guild labor union, which represents some workers at The Commercial Appeal.
***I'm sorry to inform you that the newspaper's new parent company, Gannett, is deliberately stalling severance payments to 12 former newsroom employees.***
These former employees have not received a dime of severance since they lost jobs effective April 11.

“If this discussion could in any way lead to my being disciplined or terminated, or affect my personal working conditions, I respectfully request that my Union representative be present at the meeting.”
