The 18-month strike at the Chronicle Herald is over. For some, it’s a return to the newsroom, though with a lighter paycheque and longer work week. For others, it’s a loss of a job.
Tim and Terra dissect this news, of course, in our Week in Review segment.
We also have Valerie Dufour on the show to talk about the bitter two-year lockout she experienced at the Journal de Montreal. Like with the Herald strike, those workers launched a news site while the Journal de Montreal kept publishing. And when it was over, only one-quarter of the workers returned to the paper.
Her advice to HTU members as they prepare to return to the Herald newsroom on Tuesday? Do yoga.
