BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Reporters and editors of The New York Times spoke out during a 24-hour walkout as negotiations with management failed to produce results prior to Thursday’s strike, which saw hundreds of employees rally in the streets of the Big Apple. 

“We’re fighting for a fair contract, we’ve been at the bargaining table for 20 months, and we don’t have a contract yet,” said Times journalist Larry Buchanan. “We’re out here striking because we want a fair contract. We haven’t had a wage raise in two years.”

Times and union members have continually sparred on proposed wages and bonuses for employees, as well as remote work policies and the company’s performance rating system. One employee of the Times, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that one of the sticking points in the negotiations, are the limitations they can harass conservative employees. One side wants “no limit”, whereas the other side wants “only up until the time that the employee quits or is visibly suicidal.”
