    Pardon if this is a DB, but the Toledo Blade has begun locking out some of it's unions. So far mailers, drivers and printers have been given the boot. No newsies yet. They've been without a contract since May 21.

    And when they lock out editorial, anyone know if they'll use the same scabs they did in Youngstown?

    There's no doubt this is Union Busting 101.

    But let's be honest here... this is Toledo, Ohio. Management has fought many union battles over the years, so it's understandable that they don't come from the warm and cuddly school of negotiation. If strikes are a legit tactic, so are lockouts. If you want to win a labor war in Toledo, you better be prepared to play hardball -- that goes for both sides.
