WAPO WALKOUT! Hundreds of Disgruntled Post Employees Strike in Massive Labor Protest

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.07.23

According to a Fox News report, more than 700 employees at The Washington Post walked off the job on Wednesday as part of a historic 24-hour work stoppage.

“It comes as the Washington Post Guild has clashed with management regarding terms for current employees, as well as terms for proposed buyouts The Post offered earlier this season as the paper implemented a 240-count job cut. This came after it was reported that the Washington Post was facing a whopping $100 million loss by the end of 2023,” Fox News reports.

“As workers planned a day-long picket and rally outside The Post’s offices in downtown Washington — and asked readers to abstain from the newspaper and its website for the day in solidarity — editors and other managers prepared to tackle many of the tasks that go into producing a daily news report, from writing articles to operating printing presses,” the Post reported in a story written by unnamed staffers.

“Union members said they are walking out to protest a stalemate in bargaining with the company that has left workers without a contract for 18 months,” the report continued. “They also object to the company’s recent offer of cost-saving buyouts to staffers, saying that the terms are stingy and that the ostensibly voluntary packages are being coerced by a threat of layoffs.”

Footage of the walkout was shared on X on Thursday morning.
