Talk to us, dammit

The following petition, signed by a majority of Guild-covered Press-Telegram newsroom staffers, was delivered today to editors Rich Archbold and John Futch:

In recent weeks we have learned through other media sources of an agreement between MediaNews and the Orange County Register to share journalistic content between the LANG newspapers and the OCR.

We are very disappointed that our own management team has not granted us the courtesy and respect to tell us about an agreement that has a strong potential to undermine our job security. We would appreciate the opportunity to understand how the plan will work, how they see it as an improvement to our
Press-Telegram and to ask questions about the changes. After all, we are stakeholders in this newspaper too
We await a response. Stay tuned.
