Protesters are targeting the Chicago Sun-Times after the newspaper laid off its entire staff of photographers.

The newspaper announced last week it had laid off all of its 28 full-time still photographers.

The Chicago Newspaper Guild has asked the National Labor Relations Board to rule that Sun-Times management bargained in bad faith.

Thursday morning, protesters picketted the company’s headquarters downtown.

The Sun-Times says the decision reflects the growing importance of video in its stories.

The newspaper plans to use freelance photographers and reporters to shoot photos and video.
