Newspaper Ordered to Pay Back Wages: The Los Angeles Daily News has been ordered to pay annual raises that it withheld from employees during a union organizing drive. The decision by the National Labor Relations Board upheld an earlier ruling by an administrative law judge who found the Woodland Hills-based newspaper improperly denied the raises to dissuade workers from joining the Los Angeles Newspaper Guild. The guild became the workers' bargaining agent in May, 1989.

The Los Angeles Newspaper Guild has filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing the owners of the Long Beach Press-Telegram of failing to honor the newspaper's union contract. The union also accuses Knight-Ridder Inc., which is selling the newspaper to Denver media magnate William Dean Singleton, and Press-Telegram Publications of trying to raid the employees' pension plan. The lawsuit, filed late Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, doesn't name Singleton or Garden State Newspapers Inc.

The National Labor Relations Board has ordered the Daily News of Los Angeles to pay former and current editorial employees merit raises that were suspended in 1989 when the union representing the workers began its first contract negotiations with the Woodland Hills-based newspaper. The order resulted from a complaint filed by the Los Angeles Newspaper Guild with the NLRB, accusing the Daily News of unfair labor practices.

Robert Steven Morris has resigned as publisher of the Daily News after nearly two years in the job. Morris, 37, declined to comment on his resignation. Lynne Jewell, public relations manager for the newspaper, also declined to answer questions on why Morris resigned, except to say that he plans "to pursue other business interests." Morris' resignation comes amid a period of labor strife at the Woodland Hills-based newspaper. In April, reporters, photographers and copy editors voted overwhelmingly to elect the Los Angeles Newspaper Guild as their union representatives after a three-year organizing drive.

Reporters, photographers, copy editors and artists at the Daily News voted 114-60 for the Los Angeles Newspaper Guild as their union representative, according to results made public Thursday. The election comes about three years after editorial employees, who have been nonunion, first contacted the union about representing them as their bargaining agent. Jim Smith, administrative officer for the local unit of the Guild, said that the union will continue trying to organize employees in the newspaper's circulation, advertising, finance and marketing departments.

About 70 reporters, photographers and other editorial employees of the Daily News picketed the newspaper's Woodland Hills headquarters Monday to demonstrate their unhappiness with contract proposals made by Daily News management. The Los Angeles Newspaper Guild, a union that the editorial workers elected in April, 1989, to represent them in contract negotiations, organized the lunch-hour "informational picket." The workers previously had been non-union.

Newsroom employees of the Daily News of Los Angeles averted a strike Wednesday by approving a three-year contract that would raise salaries for most editorial workers, but not by as much as their union had hoped. Members of the Los Angeles Newspaper Guild voted 125 to 25 to ratify the contract offered last week by the management of the Woodland Hills-based newspaper after 1 1/2 years of negotiations. Union members last month had authorized a strike if the contract was rejected.

Six months after opening a bureau in Camarillo, the Los Angeles Daily News has closed the office, laying off a reporter and a photographer and dispersing the remaining staff to other bureaus, a Los Angeles Newspaper Guild official said. Although Daily News officials refused to comment on the staff reductions or the closing of the Camarillo office, the Woodland Hills-based newspaper published a report Thursday saying it was laying off 10 employees as a cost-cutting move.
