Publishers Weekly: Unionized booksellers demonstrate outside NYC's Strand Bookstore

 Union booksellers rallied outside of New York City's famed Strand bookstore last week after a year of difficult relationships between labor and management, Publisher's Weekly reported.

Many of the workers in attendance had experienced three separate layoffs from the bookstore in the past year while Strand ownership had invested in Amazon stock and taken in more than a million dollars in payroll protection loans while laying off 188 employees last March alone.

Employees from nearby bookstores joined the Strand booksellers in their demonstration in solidarity.
