With union negotiations at a stalemate, The Star-Ledger’s publisher once again threatened today to shut down the state’s largest newspaper by the end of the year if millions of dollars in labor concessions are not forthcoming.

In a letter sent to employees, Star-Ledger Publisher Richard Vezza said negotiations with three of the paper’s production unions — the pressmen, engravers and machinists — are going well and it appears they will reach an agreement with the newspaper. However, the newspaper’s negotiators have made little progress with the mailers, the largest of the four unions.
