The New York Press is reporting today that the workforce at the Village Voice is contemplating a strike over “proposed cuts in healthcare coverage.”
“We are adamant that there won’t be any givebacks here,” said Tom Robbins, Voice legend and de-facto spokesman for the Voice‘s incredibly strong union, represented by United Auto Workers Local 2110. “We pay through the nose. We pay co-payments that are very expensive for our members with children. They want more co-payments, they want more, more.”
“If we don’t get it, all bets are off,” Robbins warned.
