Pressman rally against Fresno Bee nasty tactics
Early 1990s Fresno Bee bosses sweet talked the pressmen into voting out the union. Within in a couple years working conditions got worse and worse. Come 1998, the pressmen voted union again in the face of heavy boss pressure. The anti-worker pressure did not relent. The bosses fired 5 of the strongest union supporters and hired a professional anti-union law firm to stall negotiations. The issues are now before the courts and the national Labor Relations Board. Last week, the fired and their community supporters showed up at the Bee to tell there story. See link at bottom of this page for earlier stories on Fresno Bee’s virulent anti-worker tactics.
