The full bargaining committee for PNG contract talks met December 5th in the union office to review the state of negotiations.

President Mike Bocking reported on the many external factors affecting the talks – uncertainty in the economy, the industry and with the company.

Committee members reported that the recent sale of all of Postmedia’s B.C. newspapers, except PNG, and the recent termination of the most senior Postmedia executives charged with its “digital” strategy, has raised many questions among the membership about the direction of the company or the possibility of its imminent sale.

Committee members also reported some members expressing frustration over the slow pace of talks.
