UPDATE: On Thursday, Metro Halifax reported that approximately 30 Chronicle Herald employees walked out as “collective 15 minute break.” 

“We’re entitled to our breaks, and we’ve decided to all come out together as a sign of solidarity because of a disciplinary action that has come down for a couple of our members,” Ingrid Bulmer,  president of the Halifax Typographical Union, told Metro. The free daily added "a source told Metro [that]management gave out disciplinary notices to some union members regarding a misspelled headline which appeared in Monday’s paper."
