Parent company promotes him effective Aug. 1

July 24, 2002|By Robert Little | Robert Little,SUN STAFF

Howard G. Weinstein, vice president for human resources and organizational development at The Sun, was promoted yesterday to vice president of employee and labor relations for Tribune Co., the newspaper's parent corporation.

Weinstein, an attorney who joined The Sun 11 years ago, oversees the newspaper's human resources department and is responsible for negotiating contracts with its unions.

At Tribune, based in Chicago, he will guide labor relations strategy and contract negotiations for all of the company's business units, which include the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Newsday, WGN-TV and several other newspapers and television stations. He will also oversee employee relations at the corporate level and will be an adviser to the individual businesses.

Weinstein will operate out of Chicago and Baltimore initially, maintaining responsibility for human resources at The Sun until a successor is installed. His promotion takes effect Aug. 1.

"All of this is good news for Howard, who has led The Sun since 1991 through various labor negotiations, sometimes difficult," Sun publisher Michael E. Waller wrote in a letter to the newspaper's managers issued last week, before Weinstein's promotion was approved by Tribune's board of directors.
