Chronicle Herald Employees Back On The Job, Working Alongside Scabs Who Replaced Them
It's been reported that scabs had gotten government communications staff to edit their stories.

An acrimonious year-and-a-half-long labour disruption at Nova Scotia’s largest newspaper, the Chronicle Herald, is over. A deal reached including wage cuts and increased hours will see fewer than half of 61 newsroom employees return to work today.

But a thorny issue remains: the journalists and support staff who are returning will be working alongside non-guild replacement employees (scabs), whose published output included embarrassing errors [jpg] and woefully deficient reporting during the 18-month strike.
