4 Chicago Sun-Times photographers to be rehired

CHICAGO (AP) — The union representing the Chicago Sun-Times photographers who lost their jobs when the entire photography staff was fired this year says the paper's publisher has agreed to rehire four of them.

Chicago Newspaper Guild executive director Craig Rosenbaum also says the agreement is related to the tentative three-year collective bargaining agreement. Employees of the Sun-Times and the Northwest Indiana Post-Tribune ratified the agreement Monday. Sun-Times Media Group's three other newspapers are scheduled to vote Tuesday.

Rosenbaum says Sun-Times Media Group has agreed to pay a $2,000 lump sum to photographers who aren't rehired. Rosenbaum also says the four photographers have to be hired at one of Sun-Times Media Group's five newspapers. They must be rehired within 90 days of final ratification of the contract.

Sun-Times Media Group declined to comment.
