Times Tells Globe Union To Cut $10 Million In Costs

The New York Times Co. wants the Boston Newspaper Guild union to come up with half of the cost savings it's demanded from the paper. It provided a list of possible cuts and changes to contracts for the union to consider. Union members call the suggestions drastic.

The Boston Globe presented the Newspaper Guild with a list of more than a dozen ways to cut $10 million dollars out of the annual budget. The list ranges from salary cuts to eliminating the guild if the paper is sold. That's an indication to many that the Times is trying to sell the Globe.
