  1. I hear the average Teamster at the Chron (drivers, press operators, etc.) makes more than the average newsroom employee.

  2. The previous poster misquoted the very item he cites. Hope “anonymous” doesn’t report news for a living. … And if it were a bargaining tactic, it’s worked in cutting 150 jobs in editorial and sales as management moves on the Teamsters.
