No. of Recommendations: 2 reports on labor strife at another solidly Democratic redoubt:

Yesterday morning the New York Times and the New York Newspaper Guild convened to work on ongoing contract negotiations. It didn't go so well.

According to the Guild's blog, the Times had "changed not a detail of its insulting wage proposal, offered not a dime more toward our pension and raised by just a few hairs its offer on health care." So the Guild representatives walked out.

"Make their voices heard and push back hard" was the Times's editorial advice to Wisconsin's unions. The editors have not offered the same advice to their own in-house unions.

The NYT is a champion of unions only as long as they are fleecing the taxpayer and not its own precious business. Imagine that.
