Subscribers to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette did not find a newspaper on their front steps Thursday morning due to a strike by advertising, distribution and production workers.

The employees walked out after negotiations broke down between the newspaper’s management and union representatives last week over health care costs.

The union might just be killing their members jobs with this strike. These workers depend on a printed paper for their jobs and the PG is now down to just three days a week of pronted papers. Many other news paper have go full time to on line editions only eliminating jobs covered by this union. I predict PG to quickly go that route now.
