WOKE EATS ITSELF: New York Times Staffers on Strike, Fighting for 'Fair Contract'

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.08.22

According to Fox News, reporters and editors at The New York Times spoke out during a 24-hour walkout on Thursday as negotiations with management failed to produce results; “we’re fighting for a fair contract,” one journalist said.

From Fox News:

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 she worked as an assistant for the paper for six years without the salary needed to sustain a living in or around New York City.

The employee added that a $65,000-floor salary for all staffers was the most important condition needed to have a successful negotiation with the company, which has been occurring for 20 months across 40 sessions.

Kevin Draper, an investigative reporter for the Sports section, is a member of the Guild’s Contract Action Team that is talked with keeping the bargaining committee up to speed with staffer priorities.

“We feel that the New York Times management, they are not making proposals that recognize our value to the Times or the strong position the company is in,” Draper told Fox News Digital.
