Steve Proulx, who like me has been following the Journal de Montréal lockout closely, is being sued by the paper, apparently for a document he posted to his blog (later deleted) from the STIJM union which was critical of Journal management. (UPDATE: A Facebook group has been setup to support Steve)
Hugo Dumas reveals this in a column which also says the union at TVA is complaining that content its journalists provide to the business network Canal Argent is being used in the Journal and they’re acting as de facto scabs.
- The STIJM was protesting outside Quebecor-owned Archambault. Metro has video. Rue Frontenac has a photo gallery.
- The STIJM is also asking people to send them photos of giant piles of unread Journals.
