Hearst lawyers brought nothing new to the bargaining table Thursday when talks resumed for a new Guild contract at the San Francisco Chronicle.
To play this game, plug in your weekly pay, indicate what Guild health benefits you currently have and then select possible Hearst choices from the “same as” management plan. See what your pay will look like with a 1.5% increase and the contributions you will have to make to the Hearst-sponsored benefits.
At least a hundred Chronicle Guild members and allies took a break together today to walk around the building in protest of Hearst’s contract proposal that spikes health care costs but offers very little in pay increases.
“We love the Chronicle, and we love journalism, but we can’t keep donating our own livelihoods to increase the profits of our corporate owners.” Join our Twitter campaign on Monday.
Scores of reporters, editors and workers at the San Francisco Chronicle are using the social media tools of their trade — including Twitter and Facebook — in an unusual protest against Hearst.
