960 AM Labor Report: SF Chronicle to Cut Union Jobs

June 29, 2009: If you read the San Francisco Chronicle, you might be interested to know that by the end of this month 200 union workers will be out of a job.

These are the men and women of the GCC/IBT Local 4-N District Council 2. As if job cuts weren't bad enough, this story has an even more disturbing element as the Chronicle is reportedly outsourcing those 200 union jobs to a non-union facility in Fremont.
