CLEVELAND - A rally will be held Tuesday to protest apparent plans by the Plain Dealer to reduce the unionized newsroom by more than a dozen additional people than agreed to seven months ago.
Members of the Newspaper Guild bargaining committee will be picketing in front of the Plain Dealer at noon on Tuesday. The paper is cutting back on home delivery to just three days a week starting Aug. 5.
The Plain Dealer will still be published seven days a week but it will no longer be delivered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays. The bargaining committee is also protesting the company's decision to reduce its staff by more than a dozen people.
You can still purchase single editions of The Plain Dealer at more than 2,000 locations daily like gas stations and grocery stores.
