Unpaid furloughs continue at KQED
For the second year in a row, KQED is requiring most of its 250 employees to take a week long furlough, the Chron's Andrew S. Ross reports. He notes that 80 members of NABET decided not to "share the pain" and will remain at work. All 30 members of AFTRA, primarily on-air radio and TV staff, will spread the furlough throughout the year. The other 140 non-represented staff are all taking the week-long unpaid break.
