This is a sad day for @nytimes. This company pledged $150 million in stock buybacks this year, but it’s offering staff what amounts to a pay cut, during record inflation in the most expensive city in the world. I love the Times and wish it loved me back.
Today, I'm joining nearly 1200 of my @nytimes colleagues in walking off the job. It is one of the saddest days of my years working at this wonderful place. But in 20 *months* of contract bargaining, our friends in management simply refuse to get serious about wages.
Today we were ready to work for as long as it took to reach a fair deal, but management walked away from the table with five hours to go. It’s official: @NYTimesGuild members are walking out for 24 hours on Thursday. We know what we’re worth. pic.twitter.com/DtiY4DrvYg
