Not much going on, though we might get some news in a few hours as there’s another general assembly today.
Rue Frontenac, remembering that it’s primarily a pressure tactic and union vehicle, takes some jabs at the Journal. One article asks whether managers are really needed in the production of a newspaper since all of them seem to be doing reporting now.
- Some rapid-fire “observations” about the Journal and the union’s favourite whipping boy Richard Martineau.
- An anonymous locked out worker writes about how the Journal is going to hell.
- Someone has been offering free iPods in exchange for Journal subscriptions.
- Some guy who knew Pierre Péladeau visited the picket lines.
- The crazy leftists repeat that Journal journalists aren’t worthy of solidarity (again ignoring the fact that if you’re not supporting the journalists, you’re supporting the employer).
- An independent journalist suggests that unions need to insert clauses into their contracts to set minimum standards for freelancers. Funny, that sounds familiar.
