Embattled San Francisco Chronicle Workers Speak Out on Facebook

As the union for the San Francisco Chronicle braces for another round of negotiations with management, workers have taken to Facebook to express their frustrations and call for public support. Says one post:‎

‘Like’ this group to let Hearst know you stand behind San Francisco Chronicle workers. Last year, when Hearst publicly threatened to close the paper, Guild members rushed in to help. We sacrificed. We agreed to givebacks that cut our pay, vacation, benefits and job security on the promise that the company would do the same. They didn’t. Like Wall Street, Hearst took its bailout and sheltered its executives.

That deserves a “Like,” eh?
