St. Louis Newspaper Guild sponsors rally

The St. Louis Newspaper Guild will hold a vigil at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday outside the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as contract negotiations continue with Lee Enterprises. The guild also is asking its members to wear red to work in a sign of solidarity.

"I expect management will present on Tuesday, March 16, their 'last, best and final offer,'" guild business representative Shannon Duffy said in a press release. "Such an action by the management could end bargaining tomorrow. If that happens, our prayer vigil may turn into a wake -- complete with a coffin -- to mourn the passage of labor relations between the workers at our hometown newspaper, The Post-Dispatch, and the out-of-town owners, Lee Enterprises, of Iowa."
