Mar. 8, 2018 -- In what has become an International Women's Day tradition, IAPE is reviving the discussion on the long-standing claim the union has against Dow Jones—a significant gap exists between salaries of IAPE-represented men and women, even when they do the same job and have the same level of experience.

Two years ago, IAPE kick-started the company-wide debate about the gender pay gap at Dow Jones followed by a ground-breaking study that has become the benchmark in our industry.

Today, we are commissioning a follow-up review. Working again with the consulting firm Strength in Numbers, we are looking to determine if there has been any improvement after our initial findings about reporters, the single largest job title here.

We don't want to stop there. As we said last year, we are investing in expanding our analysis to look into pay disparities that could be attributable to race. This has been complicated work for a glaring reason—we have few employees of color in the reporter title. And we are interested in hearing other suggestions about how we can further study the pay dynamics at Dow Jones.

Dow Jones has said no disparities exist because of race or gender | More

No Opt-Out

Mar. 16, 2018 -- Earlier this week, the IAPE Board of Directors agreed we should all continue to focus on contributing our immense value to the Dow Jones brand and bottom line without the added distraction of contract negotiations. As such, we informed the company that we have decided to allow our contract to stand through June 30, 2019. Our message was delivered in response to a similar note from Dow Jones officials, stating that the company would not be exercising its right to terminate the contract early. All terms and conditions of our contract will remain in full effect for the next fifteen-and- | More

Jenny Roth

Mar. 13, 2018 -- Jenny, bringer of brownies and joy to Dow Jones since 2001, passed away Monday after a more than five-year battle with cancer. Our deepest sympathies to the Roth and Park families. We'll miss you, Jenny. Read note from Gerry Baker to WSJ staff below. I'm very sorry to relate that Jenny (Park) Roth, our friend and colleague on the WSJ Real-Time Desk, died Monday morning at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center after battling breast cancer.

IAPE @ Work

Dec. 29, 2017 -- IAPE's newly elected leadership took its first steps toward enacting a bold vision earlier this month. In one of its first actions at its biannual meeting, board members voted to establish a committee to lead IAPE's efforts of rooting out discrimination of any kind at Dow Jones. Led by directors Louise Radnofsky and Lillian Rizzo, the Human Rights/Diversity committee will continue work on the pay equity study. Dozens of employees have already had their salaries adjusted thanks to this groundbreaking analysis, but IAPE contends that inequities with compensation persist. | More

Grievance Filed

Dec. 15, 2017 -- Following up on our email from Nov. 20 on the member-flagged issue of potential violations of our health-care premium cap protections, IAPE has filed a grievance against Dow Jones as we take defending our contract very seriously. According to Article XII, Section A.3 of our agreement, with the company, Dow Jones is prohibited from raising premiums from 2017 to 2018 by more than 0.5% of your annual salary. For example, if your annual salary is $85,000, the most the company can increase your premiums in a year is $425 (Thanks to a freeze negotiated by our bargaining committee last year, | More
