Many Chron editors survive round of layoffs

Chron Guild rep Carl Hall tells the SF Weekly that in this most recent round of layoffs of union workers, management promised there would be "proportional" cuts of non-union managers and editors, but it hasn't happened yet.

"I'm not a cheerleader for cuts in management's ranks just to make us feel better," says Hall. "But I think that it's a fair point that if there are far fewer staff, why do you need so many managers."

Management gets another one past the guild...what a surprise.

that's always been the chronicle's problem--too many editors and others who sit around the office, too few reporters on the street
