Newspaper Guild files labor complaint against Reuters over compensation cuts

The Newspaper Guild accused Reuters of wrongly cutting the pay and benefits of 420 employees, in a complaint filed on Friday with U.S. federal regulators. The union says that Reuters informed employees on Jan. 19 that it was declaring an impasse in year-old contract talks, and would impose new terms unilaterally, in stages over the course of the year. The guild contends that there was no impasse, making the move illegal.
