'Wall Street Journal' reporters withhold bylines

Published on .

New York—Thursday marks the second day of reporters for The Wall Street Journal withholding bylines in the Dow Jones & Co. newspaper.

Reporters represented by the Independent Association of Publishers Employees withheld their bylines to protest what the union termed as “intransigence” by Dow Jones management in negotiating a new contract. IAPE members rejected a contract offer in January.

Dow Jones issued a statement saying, “We continue to negotiate in good faith with IAPE, and Dow Jones recently agreed to the union's request to engage an outside mediator to assist in the process. The first meeting with the mediator is scheduled for this Friday.”
