Union busting

If you want to see how a union gets dismantled, keep your eye on this blog, put up by the guild representing editorial employees at the Long Beach Press-Telegram. The latest post is about stalled contract talks - I wouldn't expect them to get into gear anytime soon.

Indeed, it would seem Singleton plans to employ the strategy he used to end the union at the Oakland Tribune to end the union at the LBPT, and the LBPT blog is quite aware of this.

It reminds me a little of the scene near the end of Saving Private Ryan when one of the American soldiers begs a German soldier to stop before he pushes a knife into his chest.
