I just spoke with a caller who pointed me to a brief with a photo that ran at the top of Page A-10, the first page of the Business section in print today.
It’s an item aboutchanges to United Parcel Service’s employee benefits
. It is illustrated with a photo of a woman walking in front of what appears to be a UPS Store, along with a UPS logo.
The reader who called me wanted to point out that he owns a UPS Store, but neither he nor his own employees work for UPS itself. Rather, his store is an independently-operated franchise,as are other UPS Stores.
So is this really an error? Not exactly, but it could also be confusing to others.
Does it rise to the level of requiring a clarification in print tomorrow? I’m still thinking on that one, and I’ll discuss it with senior editors in the newsroom later today.
