Just great…Baltimore Sun reporters get stiffed on raise


Poynter has the details.

In a statement, The Baltimore Sun told Poynter that it had a pre-existing contract agreement with the Washington-Baltimore News Guild before the salary increases were announced in June.

“In February, The Baltimore Sun and the Washington-Baltimore News Guild agreed to a three-year contract extension, which continues annual and guaranteed salary increases to eligible guild employees,” the statement reads. “We respect that contract. We are proud of the journalism our staff provides each day. In August, The Sun offered a proposal that would provide salary increases to a wider group of newsroom guild employees but no agreement has been reached.”
