N.Y. Newsday Management Bonuses & Raises Draw Union's Ire

NewsdayImage via WikipediaLess than a year after Local 406, the union that represents editorial staffers at Long Island's Newsday, accepted a three-year wage-freeze and pay cuts of 5 to 10 percent, management at the daily are the beneficiaries of "generous wage increases and bonuses," according to Union President Michael LaSpina.

As reported by's  Romanesko media gossip blog, LaSpina fired off a letter to Newsday mucky-mucks expressing his dissatisfaction concerning the compensation boost for management and non-union employees. "TUOL"'s non-union staff wonders why Newsday management would be rewarded for its bold leadership that included the decision to erect a paywall for its online edition that initially yield a whopping 35 subscribers (see "TUOL" post 1/28/10).
