Monday, January 23rd marks the one-year anniversary of Chronicle Herald strike. The NSFL continues our boycott of the paper; we will not advertise, submit press releases, or give interviews to the Herald until the strike is over.
In the meantime, we’re reading Local XPress, the online news service started by the Halifax Typographical Union (HTU).
The McNeil government has done nothing to discourage the union-busting tactics of the Herald’s management. To help bring the strike to an end, and to show the government that Nova Scotians we value workers’ rights, we encourage all union members to attend a rally in your area of the province to show solidarity with the HTU on Monday.
Across the province, supporters are asked to gather at around 12:15 for the rallies that will run til about 12:45pm. You have time to come out on your lunch break, bring another co-worker with you.
