San Diego Union-Tribune Staffers Get New Year’s Bonus: Longer Hours

San Diego Union-Tribune staffers will be ringing in the New Year with longer hours with no additional pay. The new workday is 8:30 to 5:30–up 30 minutes per day from under the previous ownership. You eat lunch on your own time under Douglas Manchester‘s watch.

The new hours were just one in a series of largely cosmetic but annoying changes announced today by new U-T CEO John Lynch in a memo to staff. U-T employees will also be required to start dressing in “sharp business attire.” Just because it’s warm and sunny all the time in San Diego doesn’t mean employees should dress like it. “Casual Friday” will remain intact. But, according to Lynch, it “should be only slightly less business oriented than Monday through Thursday.”

So… not really casual at then…

San Diego CityBeat has the memo in full.
