Halifax Chronicle Herald newsroom union members picket outside the newspaper's office after walking off the job in Halifax on Jan. 23, 2016. (CP)Bulmer says the union, which represents 61 editorial staff, has requested written confirmation from the company. Nancy Cook, the Herald's vice-president of administration, did not immediately return a request for comment Sunday. The work stoppage began at 12:01 a.m. Saturday after talks broke down earlier last week. The Herald has said it wants to reduce wages, lengthen working hours, alter future pension benefits and lay off up to 18 workers to cope with economic challenges that have beset North America's newspaper industry.
