The Guild issued a statement this afternoon condemning the Chicago Sun-Times' announcement today that it will lay off its entire photo staff -- 28 people, including 20 Guild members. “This is offensive and wrong on so many levels,” Guild President Bernie Lunzer said. “As a union, we are deeply concerned about the workers who are losing good, family-wage jobs. As an organization of journalists, we are appalled that any newspaper would treat its photojournalists as expendable." Graphic of empty front page by Ian W. Arsenault.
