SEC Filing Suggests GateHouse Media May Cut Up to 40 at Providence Journal

The filing indicates GateHouse will not assume the CBAs — collective bargaining agreements — negotiated by Journal management, raising questions about the staying power of the Providence Newspaper Guild, which has represented newsroom and some other workers on Fountain Street for more than a half-century.
