Pay Info Requested


Mar. 8, 2017 -- It's International Women's Day, and we're proud to recognize that at IAPE TNG/CWA Local 1096. As you may remember, a year ago today we published a preliminary review of Dow Jones salaries for union-represented employees and found a significant gender pay gap between the men and women who work here.

Since then, the company has conducted its own analysis and concluded that there's nothing much to see here, folks. Tellingly, though, the company has refused to release its findings, or explain the methodology behind its internal and external review processes.

That's not OK. Yesterday, IAPE delivered a formal information request to Dow Jones seeking copies of the work they completed last year, and an explanation of on how it was done. The Union information request explains, "This information is plainly relevant to IAPE's role in ensuring that the anti-discrimination provisions of the contract are complied with."

In the true spirit of the reporter's mantra, "If your mother says she loves you, check it out," we have also commissioned our own external study, and expect to be in a position to release that very soon.

Last March, our preliminary examination of the data found that, on | More


Fifteen partial college scholarships of $3,000 each are being offered by the CWA Joe Beirne Foundation for the 2017-2018 school year.

Storm Center

Mar. 13, 2017 -- Okay, so maybe the stupid groundhog was right after all. We've been pretty lucky in the Mid-Atlantic region this year, with only one notable winter storm in February and a few other dustings here and there. But the forecast for tomorrow calls for panic . . . um, we mean blizzard conditions throughout New Jersey. So, with the safety of the IAPE staff in mind, the Union office will be closed tomorrow due to this late-winter storm. (We might be closed Wednesday, too. Surely the township of Plainsboro will have our roads and parking lot cleared by Thursday -- fingers crossed.) You can still reach IAPE reps via email while the office is closed -- direct general | More

CBA Stays In Place

Mar. 6, 2017 -- The Independent Association of Publishers' Employees (IAPE), Local 1096 of The NewsGuild-CWA, and Dow Jones & Company have mutually agreed to preserve their collective bargaining agreement through at least June 30, 2018, the end the next Dow Jones fiscal year. The contract covering the main bargaining unit at Dow Jones, consisting of most non-management employees at locations throughout the United States and in Canada, was negotiated last fall with a three-year term, July 1, 2016 through June 30, 2019, and ratified by IAPE members in November. However, the | More

Cap To Increase

Jan. 26, 2017 -- The Independent Association of Publishers' Employees has informed Dow Jones that the annual increase in the cap on Union dues payments should be implemented as soon as possible. In a letter to Company officials today, the Union asked Dow Jones to process the increase as required by a 2005 referendum of the IAPE membership. Once the Payroll Department recalculates dues payment rates for employees, the capped amount on Union dues will rise by 43 cents, from $21.61 to $22.04 per pay period. The percentage rate for IAPE dues -- 0.7% of base pay (and commissions | More

Contract Ratified

Nov. 29, 2016 -- A majority of IAPE TNG-CWA Local 1096 members at the "main" Dow Jones bargaining unit have approved a new, three-year collective agreement. Following an extended voting period, and after the close of polls on Monday at 4:00 PM EST, the IAPE Election Committee announced 65.23% of voting members opted to approve the new agreement, while 34.64% chose to reject the contract. 791 of 1,187 eligible voters cast ballots for an impressive return rate of 66.64%, edging out the 65.69% of IAPE members who voted on the 2007-10 contract as the highest rate of voter turnout in recent years.
