Advocate sale to Gannett found to violate contract

April 10, 2007|From the Associated Press

An arbitrator found that Tribune Co.'s sale of the Advocate of Stamford, Conn., to Gannett Co. violated a union contract because the terms do not require Gannett to honor newsroom employees' collective bargaining agreement, according to court papers filed by the union.

Local 2110 of the United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America promptly filed a request to extend an injunction that a federal judge issued last month temporarily blocking the sale.

"We're still in the process of understanding the arbitrator's decision," Tribune spokesman Gary Weitman said.
