The plan would get eliminate or greatly reduce "merit pay," which management awards above union scale (from $37,128 for rookies to $69,888 for six-plus-year veterans). Assuming merit pay has really gone to the meritorious, the Strib's best journalists would get the biggest cuts.
Other alternatives could be a "three-year wage freeze, cutting overtime, and reducing or eliminating 'night differential,' the $8-$14 per day paid to those working the late shift."
