1300 NYT staffers refuse to return to office

More than 1,000 New York Times staffers refused to return to the office this week and are threatening to strike if the company does not meet its employee union demands.

The news organization's union employees announced Monday that they sent a letter to corporate leadership with the names of nearly 1,300 NewsGuild members who signed a pledge to continue to work remotely this week – the first week the company wants its journalists back in the office.

Throngs of union staffers tweeted their disdain as they were given "cute" branded lunchboxes as a free perk in a bid to get them to return to the office three times a week.

Employees said the small gesture doesn't help with soaring gasoline prices, a steady increase in inflation and sharply rising interest rates. Those who signed the pledge include members of the NewsGuild, Times Tech Guild and Wirecutter.
