Bill O’Meara, the president of the Newspaper Guild of New York, said that he expects mediation at the New York Times to produce a contract by November, if at all.
“If we’re going to have a settlement, it is going to happen between now and probably early November,” he told Poynter. On Wednesday, the newspaper and the union announced that they will enter mediation to help break the deadlock in the talks. The mediator, who will attempt to broker a deal between the two sides, will be Martin Scheinman.
