The guild representing newsroom employees at the Los Angeles Daily News made a deal with management on unpaid furloughs:
...the Guild agreed to accept five days of unpaid leave per bargaining-unit employee by March 31, 2009. Guild representatives proposed — and the company agreed — that in the event any unit member is laid off during that period, the company will pay the employee for time lost during the furlough.*Correction: I originally reported guild members at the Long Beach Press-Telegram were part of the furlough deal. According to the Stress-Telegram, they are still in negotiations with management.
