Employees at Globe and Mail reject latest contract offer

new talks scheduled for July 8

Unionized employees at the Globe and Mail have voted to reject the latest contract offer from the company.

Bargaining unit spokesman Shawn McCarthy says 92.3 per cent of employees who voted on Wednesday rejected the offer, as recommended by the bargaining committee.

McCarthy says the union - which represents journalists, ad sales people and administrative staff - and company have scheduled talks for July 8. The Globe and Mail could not be reached for comment Wednesday night.

Unifor Local 87-M had said on its website that the offer contained weakened of job security language, and would cut base pay for some advertising sales representatives.

The union also said it contained a requirement that editorial staff - except for reporters - work on advertorial copy.

    Because if Canada Post has taught us anything, it's that using a strike to extort higher wages from your employer when the entire industry you work in is dying around you is a FANTASTIC idea with no repercussions.

    I, for one, look forward to watching the Globe and Mail go out of business and the unions learning NOTHING about not biting the hands that feed them.
