Sun Union Tells Tribune Co. To Keep Quality Or Sell

Members of the union that represents newsroom staff of The Baltimore Sun have asked Tribune Co.'s CEO Dennis FitzSimons to either make sure the newspaper gets the resources it needs to maintain quality or sell it. FitzSimons was in Baltimore to talk to the staff about possible changes, amid plans for the company to overhaul itself by year's-end. The Sun has been owned by the Chicago-based company since 2000.
