Striking Journalists Put Out Own Paper

November 25, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Management was settling in for a long strike in Seattle as the first print edition of a newspaper produced by striking workers hit the streets in competition with the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. The 20-page Seattle Union Record contained familiar bylines, color photos and political cartoons--but no ads. The Pacific Northwest Newspaper Guild said it planned to distribute 30,000 copies. The newspaper had been posted online since Tuesday, when members of the guild, which represents 1,000 editorial, circulation and advertising employees at the two papers, went on strike. No new talks have been scheduled in the strike.
