Radical Truth-Telling

My advice would be to forget about brinkmanship and other forms of game playing. I would encourage transparency and honesty on both sides. This paper is in a dire situation. Its closure would not help management, the union, the employees or the city of Boston. Why not try acting like adults, telling the truth, making needed compromises and doing whatever can be done to keep the ship afloat? I know this sounds radical - the alternative is worse!
