Flag Day 2012 sidebar


With offshoring becoming a bigger issue than ever at newspapers, the Dayton Newspaper Guild-CWA took advantage of Flag Day last week to send a strong message to the company and remind workers what's at stake.

In the wee hours of June 14, Guild activists left fliers on members' desks at the Dayton Daily News.

"On this Flag Day, Cox Media Group is preparing to send advertising production jobs offshore to low-wage countries like the Philippines," the flier stated. "And the company continues to insist on the power to replace Guild-represented newsroom jobs that can't be offshored with low-paid freelancers."
