Word for Word

The upper management of the Richmond Times-Dispatch is battling its employee union over wages and benefits. Recently, Managing Editor Louise Seals sent an e-mail to employees explaining why the newspaper will give people represented by the employees' union less money for mileage than people who are not: "For travel on or after Jan. 1, 2001 in one's own vehicle, newsroom personnel who are not represented by a bargaining agent [that is, the union] will be reimbursed 27 cents per mile instead of 25 cents. We cannot change the rate for the employees represented by a bargaining agent because this is one of the elements being negotiated at the bargaining table. "If you have comments or questions about this policy, please address them to [Executive Editor] Bill Millsaps, me, or [the appropriate deputy managing editor] in private." Not by the water fountain?
