The Halifax Chronicle Herald's newsroom union members have walked off the job in Halifax, starting a strike at Canada's oldest independently owned newspaper.
The union and management were in position for a strike or lockout as of midnight Friday.
At least 20 newsroom staff were gathered outside the Herald building on Joseph Howe Drive ahead of the midnight deadline, said Francis Campbell, vice-president of the Halifax Typographical Union.
"We're all in this together," Campbell said.
"We're looking for a fair deal and we're not going anywhere until we get one."
The union includes 61 reporters, editors, photographers, columnists and support staff.
