Reuters unions asking for input on integration

It is in all of our interests to ensure a successful integration. We believe the involvement of union representatives at this stage can only assist in making the integration process smoother and limiting the potential for unnecessary conflict later.

As the recognized bargaining agents representing employees at Reuters and Thomson Financial in the U.K., the U.S. and Canada, we would like to attend the upcoming meeting of the Thomson-Reuters Decision-Making Forum currently scheduled for November. It is our intention to send no more than four (4) representatives.

All of our agreements require consultation with unions with respect to developments that affect our jurisdiction as well as members’ job security and conditions of employment. While each of our unions will deal with this in our individual workplaces, the more we understand of the broad plans now, the more productive those discussions will be.

Our previous meetings have been a good first step, but as the process moves into the next phase, we believe a broader dialogue is very important.

If the Decision-Making Forum is not the most appropriate venue, then we would ask for the opportunity to meet with you, the five senior executives guiding the process, as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Myra MacDonald, Mother of Chapel, Reuters National Union of Journalists
