Boston Globe to Times: Drop Dead

The Boston Globe may not be saved after all: The paper’s largest union rejected $10 million in wage and benefit cuts by a mere 12-vote margin, and afterward its owners at The New York Times Co. imposed a 23 percent pay cut on its members. The 700-member union now plans to file unfair labor practice charges with the Labor Relations Board and hopes to block the cut. The Boston Newspaper Guild is the only one of the paper’s four unions to reject the deal. The Boston Globe is projected to lose $85 million this year.
