SF Chronicle Saved (for Now)

sfchron03.16.09.jpgAt least in the near future, the San Francisco Chronicle will not suffer the same fate as its Hearst-owned cousin, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which is going all digital starting tomorrow.

Over the weekend, the Chronicle‘s union voted to cut at least 150 jobs as well as eliminate some benefits in order to save the struggling paper, which lost upwards of $50 million last year.

“This is the start of the real battle,” Carl Hall, lead negotiator for the Guild, said in a statement. “We have to find a solution, a real solution, to save what we really care about here — quality journalism and quality jobs.”

The final tally of the vote was 333 for and 33 against.
