You may not recall the 15 horrific months or so back in 2013-14 when my union was negotiating for a new contract with my then owners, Wrapports, Inc./The Chicago Sun-Times, but Michael Ferro was the chairman of Wrapports/CST and fought us tooth and nail with every dirty trick in the book. This was one of the low points. It appears I can't shake the oleaginous bastard.

The actual union staffers I talked to while Pioneer Press were part of Sun-Times have always carefully not elaborated on what the negotiations were like, but I always got a sense that this was the case. It's still sad to have it confirmed

Yeah. I was on the negotiating committee and it was one of the hardest times in my union life, which goes back to 1976 in Canada, and with Pioneer stretches back to 1983.
