Union Election Challenged at LAT

The following message was posted in the pressroom this afternoon.

January 17, 2007

Please be aware that based on information that has come to our attention about the union election on January 4th and 5th, we believe the union or its supporters may have improperly and unlawfully influenced the outcome of the vote in the Pressroom. Following extensive investigation, we decided to file objections with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) late yesterday afternoon.

Given the importance of this issue, we feel an obligation to all of our employees to ensure that the election was lawfully and fairly conducted, that no employee rights were violated, and that the election results were valid.

Over the next several days we will provide evidence supporting the objections and the NLRB will determine what the next steps are. We will let you know what their decision is as soon as it is made known.

This is a formality and was expected. It is obviously an attempt to discredit and/or stall. The election was run fair and square.Let them go to the NLRB and have their day in court.

Both the Times and the Union play by the rules, business rules!

The Times is a business and the Union is a business.

If you think one loves you better than the other, think again. You are the feeder fish and they (both of them) are the feeders.
