What the Independent fails to mention is that the Chicago Tribune also layed off additional newsroom people today, just 4 months after laying off 14 percent of its newsroom staff (over 80 people). Times are indeed hard for print media, regardless.

While I am no lawyer, it strikes me that the union trying to boycott businesses and their customers is, at the very least, unfair to innocent shop owners and, at most, illegal. Don't the union members realize that if the union gets businesses to pull their advertising revenue, then the News-Press loses money, which means to save what revenue remains they have to lay more people off. If the union really cared about the employees it represents, it seems like they should try bargaining at the table and not boycotting the businesses whose advertising revenue helps to pay its members their wages.
