Washington Post employees staged a social media action last Tuesday, tweeting messages of solidarity for a contract under the hashtag WaPoStrong. “I stand by the Washington Post Guild’s fight for equitable pay and against deep severance cuts,” tweeted India bureau chief Annie Gowen. “Contract now!” The employees, organized with the Baltimore-Washington News Guild, have spent the last eight months bargaining a new contract, but the Guild says management is digging in their heels. Employees are bargaining for fair pay raises, greater pension contributions from the company, and longer parental leave.
