Chronicle, Union Reach Deal on Job Cuts

The owners of the San Francisco Chronicle and the union representing journalists have reached a tentative agreement to limit job losses in exchange for giving up seniority rights. If the deal is approved by the rank-and-file membership of the California Media Workers Guild, then 150 Chronicle union employees will be laid off – many of them from the newsroom. A vote on the pact could take place as early as Thursday.
