The St. Paul Pioneer Press’s Newspaper Guild approved concessions Friday, voting to go down to a 37.5-hour workweek, deep-six a previously promised 3% pay raise, and take a week of furlough in exchange for no layoffs for a year.
The Pioneer Press was poised to lay off 26 employees as it’s unprofitability became known; David Brauer reported last week that the paper was the only MediaNews paper that was losing money.
MediaNews filed for bankruptcy last week.
