According to this tweet by Robert Sietsema, something is going on down there:

Entire Voice staff just walked out, over 50 of us standing outside on the sidewalk. Still hoping to avoid a full-blown strike
I do not know the details.


The details:

Village Voice staffers are threatening to go on strike this weekend because of salary cuts and declining benefits. But that doesn’t mean that they’re going stop working—they’re just not going to let the newspaper benefit from it.

The Village Voice Media workers union has announced that in the case of a strike—which the union has authorized if a new contract isn’t agreed upon by midnight Friday—it will keep producing content and post it to a Tumblr page, where Village Voice Media can’t sell ads.

Everywhere is becoming Greece.
