Public Interest At Stake

My advice to both the Globe ( and N.Y. Times) management and the unions is to exhibit patience in negotiations. The public interest is at stake; an informed citizenry is the foundation of our democracy. Both sides need to be reminded of the significance of the negotiations.

If union members are to make concessions, so should management.The latter's salaries and benefits should also be cut.

A 60-day deadline for the resolution of the impasse seems a bit arbitrary. If the two sides can't come together, then the issue should go to arbitration, led by a person of stature who enjoys the respect of both parties.
