Thomson Reuters Smells a Rat

During a global real estate summit hosted by Thomson Reuters this week, two men in rat costumes pretending to be the company’s CEO Tom Glocer and divisional CEO Devin Wenig interviewed people on the street about the company’s alleged illegal pay cuts and use of taxpayer dollars to pay for new office space.

Video of the rat-on-the-street interviews is being ciruclated by the Newspaper Guild of New York. Thomson Reuters is heading into arbitration with the guild after the U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan threw out an attempt by Reuters to keep disuptes with the union out of court earlier this week, according to the guild’s Web site.
