Some Sun-Times photographers could return

Robert Feder
An interim agreement between the Chicago Sun-Times and the Chicago Newspaper Guild “could lead to the rehiring of some of the photographers who were laid off by the newspaper earlier this year,” Robert Feder reports. The Sun-Times laid off its entire photo staff this past May.

Feder reports the Sun-Times management “agreed to bring back a number of the 28 photographers who were fired.”

In exchange for the agreement on the photographers, the union is expected to drop its unfair labor relations charge with the National Labor Relations Board.

    Only 130 news persons left on the staff of a once great metro newspaper. That is really pitiful. There is no way they can cover the city let alone the metro. It’s certainly not the newspaper I left in 1972.
