    Scoop: NYT unions file cease-and-desist letters to management over return-to-office policies – By Sara Fischer (Axios) / Aug 29, 2023

    Two of the New York Times’ unions have sent cease-and-desist letters to management over its new policies that will see the Times monitoring its workers’ return to office via badge swipes, sources told Axios.

    Why it matters: Despite reaching a historic contract agreement with the union that represents most of its editorial workers in May, the company’s management continues to face a slew of contentious labor issues.

    Details: The Times said it would require workers to return to the office three days per week until Sept. 2, 2024, at which time the company has the right to increase the in-office requirement to four days per week. A spokesperson said it has no plans to do that.

    • As part of an announcement about the policies last week, the Times said newsroom leaders may periodically observe badge swipe data to review attendance trends and it “may flag individuals with particularly low attendance,” per Semafor’s Max Tani.
