Ink-Stained Kvetch: Post-Dispatch Retirees Make Good on Threat, Protest Ex-Employer

It all piles up.
Several dozen former employees of the Post-Dispatch gathered yesterday morning outside the newspaper's office on Tucker Boulevard to protest cuts to their health-care coverage.

As first reported last week in Daily RFT, Lee Enterprises, owner of the paper, notified former employees December 7 that it planned to eliminate all reimbursements for retiree's medical coverage. The newspaper guild, meanwhile, argues that health-care insurance was guaranteed when the employees retired.

The medical coverage is the latest in a series of cutbacks Lee Enterprises has made since purchasing the newspaper in 2005.

KSDK Channel 5 was at yesterday's protest. Following is a video clip of the rally.

Absolute accurate perceptions written in a very detailed manner on this page when it comes to gain some knowledge in regard to foreclosed properties. Foreclosures surrounded some of our states as economy hit people badly. Government should announce a workable plan to keep things in control.produce the note
