Will John and Linda Henry Strike Out at the Boston Globe ?
Boston, MA: 1.19.2019 – Boston Globe owner billionaires want more from workers in an attempt to dilute the CWA Unions strong power. New demands include:
If a new owner buys us, our contract disappears.
Boston Newspaper Guild reports 1.19.2019 – If a new owner buys us, our contract disappears. Our current contract includes a key clause that requires that if the company is sold to a new owner, the new owner must adhere to our current contract. The proposal the Globe has on the table would eliminate that.
Pay Shutdown – Using unpaid Union worker while on the job after 37 and a half hours, with no limit.

Boston Newspaper Guild reports 1.19.2019 – Shift differentials would also be eliminated for these employees. There would be no cap on how many hours you could be asked to work without additional pay. The company could also ask you to come into work on a holiday with no advanced notice.
No more seniority and reductions to severance pay.
Boston Newspaper Guild reports 1.19.2019 Seniority would be eliminated from the layoff process. Instead, the company would be able to pick and choose people to lay off at its full discretion. And laid-off employees would receive substantial reductions in severance pay.
