Through the blustering wet flakes of snow, employees could still be seen marching the picket line outside the Chronicle Herald’s Joseph Howe Drive building Friday.

You could not go two minutes without hearing a sympathetic honk from passers-by.

Even so, striking photographer Tim Krochak says he feels conflicted as the Herald strike enters its second week. As a “news junkie”, he feels his time should be spent working.

“On a day like this where it’s snowing and there are nice pictures to be made, I’m here on the sidewalk,” said Krochak.  “On the picket line.”
