Times Management Stages a Walkout of Its Own


After unionized New York Times employees walked out of work for a “breather with purpose” on Monday, they went back to the negotiating table on Tuesday to keep trying to work out a contract, but things didn’t go smoothly. After just ten minutes of talks, management negotiators got up and left the meeting in a little walkout of their own, the Newspaper Guild told its members in a memo. The Times’ management says it’s going to make a “final offer” to the union on Thursday, which the guild memo says “could take us to the brink of an impasse.”
