Greater Sudbury city councillors as well as area MPPs will not grant interviews to The Sudbury Star during the current labour dispute.
The newspaper, owned by Osprey Media Group, locked unionized workers out Oct. 5.
The newspaper is continuing to publish daily using management and replacement workers.
?The decision of our local MPPs and city councillors has been heartening to the employees who have been put out on the street and who have seen their jobs taken by scabs,? said Dennis St. Pierre, president of the 65-member Northern Ontario Newspaper Guild.
St. Pierre usually covers city council for the newspaper.
