Globe Readies For NYTCo. Execs’ Visit

nytco.pngThe New York Times Co. Chair Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and CEO Janet Robinson informed staff members at The Boston Globe yesterday to expect a visit on September 9, The Boston Herald reported.

Robinson and Sulzberger will be in town for two all-staff “business update” meetings, the execs told Globe staffers in a memo. But they shouldn’t expect a very warm reception. Tensions are still high between the Boston paper and its New York-based owners, and there is still uncertainty over future layoffs and whether the Globe will be sold.

Dan Totten, the president of the paper’s biggest union, which rejected the Times Co.’s concession plan in June, told the Herald that people are considering picketing outside for the executives’ visit. However, the execs said they will be taking questions, alongside Globe publisher P. Steven Ainsley.

Hopefully, Globe employees will get some answers.
