NDP not accepting media requests from Chronicle Herald during strike

January 23, 2016

The Nova Scotia NDP Caucus is not accepting media requests from the Chronicle Herald while its unionized workers are on strike.

During this period the NDP will not participate in interviews with replacement freelance reporters hired by the Herald, nor will it submit press releases or opinion pieces to the newspaper.

“We need to stand with the women and men who produce the news we depend on to stay informed about what’s going on in our province,” says NDP Leader Maureen MacDonald. “They are dedicated professionals and deserve to be treated fairly and respected for the important job that they do.”
