Judging by a column in the Niagara Falls Reporter, the Globe may be facing more such decisions in the next two quarters:
If you notice a dour look in the eye of your favorite Niagara Gazette reporter, ad sales representative or publisher, don't take it personally. Chalk it up to poor decision-making and godawful planning on the part of those who manage Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., the Alabama-based chain that bought the local daily a dozen years ago.
For the second time this year, the company is requiring all staffers to take an unpaid five-day furlough. If CNHI continues to teeter on the brink of insolvency, two more weeks of what company executives like to call "black time" will be imposed by the end of the year, making a job at the Gazette essentially a part-time position.
