In a subsequent on-line vote the Board approved the shift of Tricia Croley from a South Brunswick Location Director to the position of Classification Director / Technology and her nomination to the Executive Council.
The Board also selected the IAPE President as the union member to be designated as on leave, as provided by the DJ/IAPE contract.
The Board also approved a resolution that directs the IAPE Human Rights/Jobs With Justice Committee, to investigate allegations of gender, age or racial-based wage discrimination suffered by IAPE members at Dow Jones. The committee will be chaired by IAPE vice-president Bob Kozma and will report its findings and recommendations, in a timely manner, to both the IAPE Executive Council and Board of Directors.
The Board also received reports from Union Organizer Tim Martell, the Finance Committee, the Classification Committee, Grievance Committee and Labor-Management Committee, each of which is published elsewhere on this website and in the December edition of the IAPE newsletter, Media Matters.
