Albany Fights Firing of Ad Sales Employee, Guild Activist

The Albany Guild is vigorously fighting the firing of advertising sales employee Lindsay Connors, a Guild activist who the union says has been the target of management harassment and unfair standards. The local describes Connors, a single mother of four, as "one of the best and brightest employees" at the Times Union. “No one among Lindsay’s peers believes the company’s fraudulent claims that Lindsay is anything but a stellar employee,” Albany President Tim O’Brien said. “She can hold her head up high. The truth is known to all her colleagues and many friends here.” Connors is pictured here with the 2014 Guild Service Award, the union's highest honor. It was presented to her in April at the Guild's multi-council meeting.
