Village Voice Staffers Avoid Strike

Late last night, Graham Rayman, a writer for The Village Voice and Spokesman for the Union that was threatening to strike, posted on Tumblr that an agreement had been reached and a deal would be discussed sometime this morning.

While it sounded like the staffers might strike and resort to posting content to an alternative site, Voice Editor-in-Chief Tony Ortega thought it was much ado about nothing. He tweeted several times leading up to last night that the union threatens to strike every three years, and every three years they reach a deal.

Well thank god for this, because there was no way we were going to remember to check that Tumblr each day.
