Union rejects Globe final offer

A strike or lockout at the Globe as early as Thursday is possible as the CEP local at the Globe and Mail rejected what management described as its final offer. While there is some talk of the sides going back to the table on Tuesday, it’s difficult to do so after one side has tabled what it calls a final offer. There is some possibility of mediation/conciliation, in which a third party steps in to try to bring the two sides together. I’m not sure what the Globe’s strategy is on this; the National Post could make some gains if a Globe strike/lockout make it the only “national” newspaper left (I hesitate to call it a national newspaper when it doesn’t provide home delivery in six provinces — Atlantic Canada, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.)
