A one-day strike by carriers at a distribution contractor for the Chicago Tribune delayed deliveries of the Sunday paper for an estimated 6,000 home delivery customers.
The wildcat strike also affected delivery of Sunday copies of The New York Times and weekend editions of The Financial Times.
In a televised report on WSL-TV, a worker was quoted as saying the one-day strike was meant to show carriers’ anger over what he called cuts in the terms of their arrangements with the contractor.
The Tribune said it expected the delivery center to deliver to all affected customers by late Sunday morning.
