Your Contract Proposals
The IAPE contract bargaining team met with the company's team in New York this morning to exchange contract proposals.
The Union proposals are the result of the membership surveys and conversations we've had with hundreds of members in one-on-one meetings across the country. We wanted you to see the proposals as they were shown to the company.
Dow Jones CEO Rich Zannino has repeatedly assured us that he shares our commitment to a Quality Contract. Rich has made it clear that the employees of Dow Jones are the most important asset of this company— and that we must work together to develop, motivate, reward and retain the best in the business.
We're taking Rich at his word.
The proposals we've delivered to the company — and posted on the website— are reasonable and well-reasoned. They are designed to fulfill Rich's promise to develop, motivate, reward and retain the best in the business. In short, the Quality Contract you've earned.
As for the Company's proposals, we'll share those with you as soon as they're received.
