A year ago, unionized Chronicle Herald employees left for the picket lines, after Herald management demanded wage cuts, severance caps and a reduction in the number of union positions.
Today on Jan. 23, the one-year anniversary of the strike, strikers are prepared to rally across the province, with six confirmed rallies across Nova Scotia.
Halifax Typographical Union (HTU) president Ingrid Bulmer met with the union’s secretary Claire McIlveen and striking news editor Christine Soucie Madill on Thursday in their “war room,” held in a secret location, to prepare for the protest. The Signal was there to see the preparations unfold.
