Herald Contract Talks Break Down
The latest round of talks between the Chronicle Herald and its striking workers broke off, yesterday.
The union says the company tabled a position that was worse than the one that led them to go on strike in the first place.
61 members of the Halifax Typographical Union, including three in Sydney, have been off the job since January 22nd.
Both sides had been meeting with a provincially appointed conciliator.
Chronicle-Herald Chief operating officer, Ian Scott says the company has no choice but to make cuts and adds their proposal to the union reflected that.
Meanwhile, Halifax Typographical Union Vice-President, Frank Campbell, says union members were willing to accept some cuts, but adds the company was asking for too much.
