CP calls for conciliator

The new Canadian Press, which transformed from a co-operative to a private company in 2010, is having labor problems these days. WIthout a contract since the end of 2011, the request means neither party can walk away from the table till April. The Canadian Media Guild represents 240 staffers; management’s argument is they’re losing money; likely the unions is focusing on the pension fund, which has been a bone of contention for some time. Stay tuned. This whole mess wouldn’t have happened if Sun Media and Post Media walked out of the co-operative several years ago, severely reducing the number of media using CP copy.
