Mr. Jones,


An overwhelming majority of newsroom employees at the Springfield News-Leader have signed union authorization cards stating that they desire to be represented by the United Media Guild.  We therefore request that the Springfield News-Leader recognize the United Media Guild as the collective bargaining agent for all of your newsroom employees.  Please reply by Wednesday, January 8, if you agree to recognize the United Media Guild.


Thank you and Happy New Year,


Shannon Duffy

Administrative Officer

United Media Guild, TNG-CWA 36047
