The union for Bloomberg Industry Group plans to stage a demonstration Monday to protest difficult negotiations with management over wages and telework, reports Sara Fischer of Axios.
Fischer writes, “Union organizers for Bloomberg Industry Group plan to hold a demonstration Monday at 12:30 p.m. ET to persuade management ahead of its union contract expiring Tuesday at midnight.
- At this point in negotiations, union members think it’s unlikely the two parties will reach a tentative agreement by that deadline.
- Union organizers are planning to congregate in front of Bloomberg Industry Group’s downtown Washington D.C. office with a bullhorn shouting chants. They will have a person dressed up as a huge dinosaur, which reflects one of the union’s slogans: “Don’t be a dinosaur. Pay what we’re worth.”
- Dozens of union members are expected to participate in-person on Monday, according to a union member. Other Washington-Baltimore NewsGuild unions have been invited to participate as well, including the one for The Washington Post.”
