‘BOSTON GLOBE’S JACOBY TAKES LEGAL ACTION

By: Joe Strupp

Columnist Challenges Suspension





by Joe Strupp



Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby is formally challenging his widely
publicized, four-month, unpaid suspension with a grievance filed on his
behalf by union officials. Newspaper Guild Local 245 President Robert
Jordan filed the complaint earlier this month, seeking to rescind the
suspension, obtain back pay, and gain ‘other related relief.’



The grievance process is covered under the Globe’s contract with Local
245. The next step is a meeting between union and management officials
to determine if the complaint has validity. Jacoby said he hopes the
action will allow him to return to work ‘sooner rather than later.’



Globe officials declined comment on the matter.
