This morning, following a ratification vote by the St. Louis Review bargaining unit, the United Media Guild signed an 18-month contract extension with the St. Louis Review. The agreement contains no changes to the terms and conditions of employment but it does include two wage increases. First, there is an immediate 3% wage increase, retroactive to the contract expiration in December, 2019. The second raise occurs July 1, 2021 and, depending on other wage increases awarded within the archdiocese, will be at least another 3% . Congratulations to our brothers and sisters at the Review and congratulations to the St. Louis Archdiocese for living its values.
