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. Since this crucial issue requires the dedication of a group of employees that span news and business, IAPE revived the committee with that mandate in mind and is encouraging all members to get involved.

IAPE plans to use new initiatives like the Human Rights committee to create a more inclusive and effective union. If we're going to eliminate biases that cause some employees to receive less pay than their peers or investigate claims of editorial interference or keep health-care costs low, we're going to need the support of smart, committed individuals—an abundant resource at Dow Jones.

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
