NLRB goes after Washington Post

    WASHINGTON — A federal labor agency on Thursday accused the Washington Post of failing to negotiate with the newspaper’s union over extra work employees were asked to perform for its radio station.
    In a complaint filed against The Washington Post Co., the National Labor Relations Board said the company’s management repeatedly violated labor laws, beginning in 2006, by failing to negotiate in good faith with the Washington-Baltimore Newspaper Guild, which represents more than 1,200 newsroom and commercial employees.
    The complaint against the newspaper, which is scheduled to go before an administrative law judge on September 26, charged that employees were not fairly paid for work they contributed to Washington Post Radio, the guild said in a press release. And it said the newspaper this year did not properly negotiate with the union before demanding employees perform extra work for The Onion, an independent fake news publication that the Post prints.
    The guild lodged its complaints with the labor board on May 2, 2006 and March 14, 2007, according to Steve Shuster, a regional director for the labor board.
    Eric Grant, a spokesman for the Washington Post, said the complaint filed by the guild is without merit.

    The Onion is really produced by the Post?

    F-in' sellouts!

    I'm not sure but I think that could be production people. I think the Post simply prints it for distribution in that area.

    I always thought The Onion was based out of Milwaukee.

    It was based out of Madison until they moved their offices to NY a few years ago.
