Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newsroom employees walked off the job Tuesday in the city’s first newspaper strike in 30 years. But this latest work stoppage is taking place in a drastically different landscape for both media and labor.
According to the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh, a union which represents more than 100 employees, most people who took buyouts will be leaving by the end of the week.
According to attorney Sam Cordes, the newspaper’s actions violated the Civil Rights Acts of 1866 and 1964 for retaliating against someone who opposes or protests race discrimination.
