Say it Ain't So.... Is the Globe going the way of the Brooklyn Eagle?

The Globe’s largest employee union has rejected a tentative contract agreement with the New York Times Company, a decision that puts the future of the paper in limbo.
The union received 277 “no” votes and 265 “yes” votes.
“It’s bittersweet that there was a no vote with such a slim margin,” newsroom union delegate Beth Daley said last night. “I think people realize that his was a Hobson’s choice and no matter what they voted, the outcome was going to be difficult.”
“I do hope the company goes back to the table in good faith and finally negotiates a deal that will save the Globe but finally acknowledge the incredible sacrifices being made by Guild members,” Daley said.
