It looks like Michael Ferro’s private jet travel just got much more expensive and a lot more secretive. Tronc has handed Ferro and one of his companies a $5-million-a-year “consulting agreement” that would cover the cost of his sleek Bombardier jet and any other luxury travel he chooses to indulge in.
We’re appalled that Tronc’s executive team — including Ross, Lewis and Jim — is trying to disenfranchise dozens of employees and undermine our democratic choice. This disrespects our newsroom and demonstrates why we need a union: to make sure all our voices are heard. Tronc doesn't decide who gets to vote.

In one of the nation’s most expensive real estate markets, TCN staffers can barely afford rent. Meanwhile, Dearborn enjoys an annual housing allowance of $175,000.
