Here's the Hamilton memo:
Colleagues,An almost identical memo went out to the other LANG newspapers.
Tomorrow and for some later today, along with your paycheck, you'll be receiving a letter about another step our newspapers are taking to tackle the difficult economic challenges that we are facing.
In short, we'll be suspending accrual of employee vacation time from April 5, 2009 through July 4, 2009. The letter will go into specifics and our human resource VP Louise Kopitch is available to answer your questions.
I want to let you know that I truly appreciate all the additional sacrifices and hard work that all employees have made during these unprecedented times.
The union representing workers at the Daily News and Press-Telegram says the freeze won't apply to its members.
*Update: Jim Janiga, LANG's head of human resources, sent out a memo (read it here) that provides a general sense of how much vacation time will be lost. (via LA Observed)
