More than 200 members of the Newspaper Guild of New York Local 31003 gathered silently outside the New York Times Page One meeting room recently in a quiet, 10-minute display of dissent. (Video here)
Times’ employees represented by the Guild have been without a contract for almost a year, and Guild members said the protest was to show "our common dismay over contract negotiations in which management seems determined to seriously compromise our financial welfare, our access to health care and our security in retirement."
The Times’ proposed cuts come as former CEO Janet Robinson walks away with a termination package worth $24 million dollars. For more information go to:
