Guild 'disappointed' in BANG-EB talks
"[M]anagement bargainers showed little interest in moving the last steps toward a reasonable compromise on critical issues concerning economics and our ability to negotiate any changes in terms," Guild negotiators said on their Web site after Wednesday's negotiating session with MediaNews management. "... We are working through a federal mediator to bring the issues to a close very soon. In hopes of bridging these final gaps, the two sides have agreed to meet May 12."
