The Manchester Newspaper Guild, which will picket the Union Leader's spelling bee Saturday, today filed a 7-count unfair labor practice complaint against their employer with the NRLB. "Our complaint, as well as one the company has filed against the local alleging 'bad faith bargaining,' mark a new and unprecedented LOW in the 72-year history of labor relations between our local and The New Hampshire Union Leader," Guild leaders told members in an email Friday night. "At the same time, our efforts together to mobilize both ourselves and the public in our opposition to the company's proposals has made a real difference. It really isn't a coincidence the company has retracted its retroactive pay and insurance proposals. Your picketing, and billboard, and personnel file requests and petition and stickers and tent cards and all the other actions we've taken together helped make that happen."
