Dispute Disrupts N.Y. Times Delivery


Delivery of Friday's editions of the New York Times was disrupted after the new owner of two of the paper's wholesale delivery operations locked out existing drivers and hired replacements to take their place.

Only 90,000 copies of a normal run of 230,000 papers were delivered to readers on Long Island, Westchester and Fairfield County, Conn., Times President Lance Primis told a news conference.

"In some cases the papers were late in getting to our readers," he said.

The normal daily distribution of 900,000 copies of the paper in New York City was not affected, he said.
