Last week, Tribune Publishing announced a new discretionary time off policy – meaning that employees at the LA Times and other newspapers would no longer earn and accrue vacation days or sick days. Instead, they’d have to go to a supervisor and make the case for paid time off. Needless to say, LA Times staffers were very upset. But late Friday night, the Tribune’s CEO announced he was rescinding the change. LA Observed editor Kevin Roderick has been keeping an eye on the story, and joins KCRW's Steve Chiotakis.
