Work furlough beats layoffs

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

Monthlong furloughs at Access Tucson continue the bad economic news gripping our community, but we’re pleased the public TV station was able to limit cuts to only one position – so far anyway.

Part-time workers’ hours have been reduced and benefits rescinded, and the station will close for June with unpaid leave for all 11 full-time and three part-time workers.

But they won’t lose their jobs – which is more than thousands of Tucsonans can say.

We’re very happy that Access Tucson, an important media outlet, will continue without losing staff.

Independent media must continue to operate in the Old Pueblo so residents get a variety of views.

We hope Tucsonans will support Access Tucson, KXCI Radio 91.3, Arizona Public Media, Tucson Weekly and other local news outlets through these tough economic times.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
