Sun-Times Orders All EAs And Copy Editors To Work Downtown

The Company also communicated to the Guild that all EAs and copy editors from all of its properties would now be required to work at the downtown Sun-Times location. The Guild’s Executive Director, Craig Rosenbaum, believes that forcing EAs and copy editors to transfer from northwest Indiana, Joliet and Waukegan to downtown violates the terms of the bankruptcy MOU. The Guild intends to file a grievance over this matter.

Rather than work with the Guild and let EAs and copy editors at the Post Tribune, Herald News, News Sun and Pioneer Press have the option to work remotely or from home, the Company has told the Guild that all EAs must report downtown. At the January 25 negotiations, the Guild told the Company that EAs from other metropolitan area and suburban properties could do the same work from home that they would be required to do from downtown.

    I’m at the Sun-Times, and we’re packed in like rats while the big shots get comfy offices. Believe me, we’re not looking forward to even more people sitting at tables with laptops. We’re all suffering, EAs more than most, but every single union member has been punished for doing his or her job. You’re right, we took a cut and it’s time to restore our money. Do the right thing, Ferro, et al.

    The paper bought The Reader and talking about buying Trib assets, etc., but they can’t restore the money that was virtually stolen from us during the Reign of Terror. That’s a shame. We work in good faith and do our best and the company spits in our faces. I think this could possibly get ugly

    After cutting the salaries of EAs close to 20% and then the state and federal income tax hikes, my salary is now 25% less than it was 4 years ago. Having to travel to downtown Chicago is a hardship that will put my home at risk of foreclosure. It’s a shame the company does not recognize the very loyal employees who have toiled through the hard times and restore their pay levels accordingly.
