MediaNews Group, the Bay Area's largest newspaper owner, is being lampooned in a music video posted on YouTube that was created by Guild members who have been working without a contract at the company's paper in York, Pennsylvania. E&P has details of the York Daily Record dispute. Marshall Anstandig, MediaNews' top labor negotiator, told E&P: "I would probably suggest they spend more time negotiating a contract than singing songs ... It is childish and immature." As of 11:15 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, the video had been viewed 336 times. The photo above is a screen grab from the video showing a tent the union put up at a county fair to gather signatures on petitions.
