Various News

Good Evening, My Friends,

I had a couple quick things I wanted to shoot out to you all real quick. I've been tied up in some other things lately, so I've been a little remiss in my union emails, but hopefully I'll get the desk cleared off and back in order soon. So, without added delay, here goes:

First off, the electronic technology statement issue's still unresolved. Our counterparts down at the Press-Telegram are supposed to have a meeting with HR down there to get an explanation of the monitoring clause; once that's resolved, we should be able to clear things up quickly. In the meantime, just hang onto your sheets. Ron agreed to wait until the issue's clarified, so don't worry about handing them in or, if you already have, don't lose sleep over them. I'm sure we'll get it worked out soon.

Secondly, we've got a pair of open jobs, so if anyone's interested, direct them to the posts below.

That's all for now and stay tuned for our other ongoing adventures,

The Daily News has an opening on the News/Copy desk for a full-time copy editor. Strong knowledge of grammar, style, punctuation and spelling are required as well as an ability to edit for smoothness and flow. Headline skills also are required. Computer-design skills are a plus. A college degree is needed and three years' editing experience is desired, but entry-level applicants will be considered. Written editing, spelling and identification tests will be given, and a tryout may be required.

Hours will be as needed, but the basic shift is 3 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
