Post-Dispatch to require unpaid furloughs

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch will require all non-union employees to take a one-week unpaid furlough, citing the continuing economic downturn.

The newspaper said Friday that the furloughs must be taken by March 31 and will affect about 300 non-represented employees. The newspaper will ask union leaders for their support to include represented workers in the furlough plan.

The Post-Dispatch also says all 2009 merit raises for non-union workers have been suspended. Furthermore, the newspaper is suspending its match for its 401(k) program.
