Rockford/Freeport votes in the Guild

Despite heavy pressure from GateHouse management, newsroom employees at the Rockford Register Star and Freeport Journal-Standard voted 14-10 to gain representation from the United Media Guild

Soon this unit will hold its first meeting and elect officers. The unit will be formulating its opening contract proposal for the start of negotiations.

The UMG will notify GateHouse of its wish to begin bargaining as soon as possible.
