Jan. 15, 2014 -- Dow Jones special writer and IAPE member David Bird has been missing from his Millington, New Jersey home since Saturday, January 11th.

For those familiar with the area, David was last seen walking on foot in the area of the intersection of Northfield Road and Long Hill Road. Due to a medical condition, he may act confused or disoriented. He is not dangerous.

"He advised his wife he was going out for a short walk, he left his cellphone and charger and he has never returned," Long Hill Township Police Chief Michael Mazzeo told 1010 WINS. "We're out trying to gather as much intelligence through his computer, through his cellphone, through information provided by his wife, family and friends."

David is 6'1" and 200 pounds with grey hair and blue eyes. At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a bright red jacket with two yellow zippers in the front and blue jeans.

Please call Long Hill, NJ police at 908-647-1800 with any leads or information.

Stormy Weather

Feb. 11, 2014 -- Over the last couple of weeks, IAPE members from Atlanta to Allagash have reached out to the Union wondering about storm days at Dow Jones. And since, just yesterday, a manager in New York decided to remind Americas Copy Desk staff about the perils of working from home during stormy weather, we thought it might be helpful if we again explain the REAL policy regarding your obligations during severe weather events. Since 1997, IAPE-represented employees have been protected by a negotiated agreement concerning "Severe Weather Emergencies." The document explaining the terms of that agreement is posted here. In short, if a state of emergency is declared AND the roads or transit system you use to get to work have been closed by government order, you . . . | More

A Message From Bob

Jan. 31, 2014 -- First we had the Bancrofts as owners. Now we have the Murdochs. We have endured Peter Kann and Rich Zannino as CEOs, followed by Les Hinton. Lex came . . . and went. The chandelier is going, too. Through all the changes, one thing is clear: We, the employees represented by the Independent Association of Publishers' Employees, make Dow Jones & Co. happen. From the Wall Street Journal to Barron's, from Factiva to MarketWatch -- we make it happen. From New York to California, Dallas to Toronto, Chicago to Washington -- we make it happen. From newsrooms to press rooms; from sales to customer service; building maintenance, circulation, finance, payroll, technology -- wherever you see "Dow Jones" painted on a wall or stenciled on a door -- we make it happen. | More

In a late-Tuesday afternoon press release, News Corp also announced plans to review the media company's "institutional strategy" and named William Lewis as interim CEO. "We thank Lex for his time and energy at the helm of Dow Jones, and in particular for his original vision of DJX as an innovative way to integrate content and deliver it to customers in a timely manner," News Corp Chief Executive Robert Thomson said in the statement.
