Actually, this situation is precisely that of "The Fountainhead", in which the newspaper owner:
* fires a columnist because he went against editorial policy
* is subjected to a "sympathy strike" by a large number of employees
* is ordered by the court to hire him back.

So..
* he hires him back, has him report for work at exactly 9:00am, and then
* closes the newspaper at exactly 9:01am, throwing everyone out of a job.

Does the term "Phyrric victory" come to mind??
