Globe Union Members Rally To Save The Paper

About 200 people came to a downtown rally to show support for the Boston Globe’s union negotiating with the paper’s owners, The New York Times Co.

Union members, civic leaders and supporters chanted in front of Faneuil Hall, holding signs reading “Save The Boston Globe” and “The Globe Belongs To Boston.” They asked readers to imagine the city without the daily newspaper that has been published since 1872.

“This is about our city. This is a good fight. We would fight just at hard to save the Red Sox, the Boston Common or the Golden Dome,” says City Council President Michael Ross, who attended the rally.
