As the strike at the Chronicle Herald moves into its second year — and with the possibility of a bad faith bargaining complaint looming — the union representing striking newsroom staff and the paper’s management are preparing to take another stab at resolving the conflict.
They’re bargaining again after months without official negotiations. During that time the union attempted to drive the situation forward by filing an unfair labour practices complaint to Nova Scotia’s Labour Board — a complaint Herald managment deemed groundless. That hearing had been scheduled to start Jan. 23, exactly a year after the dispute began, but was postponed this week while bargaining resumed.
