This item caught my attention:
On previously discussed hot-button items like combining operations among McClatchy papers, using of part-timers/on-callers to replace full-timers and guaranteeing work hours, the company said it would not implement those provisions until April 1, 2010.
So eight months from today the company can bring in on-call workers and part-timers to replace full time workers. Well that's reassuring.
Negotiations? Can you really call it that?
Management: Bend over
Guild: How far? If I have to touch my toes we'll vote NO! We will rise up in the name of the chilren.
Management: You don't have to touch your toes until next month. For now just spread your butt cheeks.
Guild: Ah Ha! We've got you right where we want you. What a great day for comrades everywhere. We have defeated the demands of our oppressors.
