The Teamsters claimed yet another victory in their ongoing conflict with News-Press owner Wendy McCaw. This one involved Teamster claims that the News-Press took away former columnist Starshine Roshell’s column in retaliation for her evident pro-union sympathies. According to the union, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) agreed that the News-Press action against Roshell – now a columnist for The Independent – was in fact retaliatory and should be prosecuted as such. Meanwhile, McCaw has filed another complaint against the union, claiming that Teamster supporters and organizers have vandalized News-Press newsracks and stolen newspapers. The NLRB has yet to validate any of McCaw’s allegations.
