Blah Day update

Rob Lamberti, the Toronto Sun's senior crime writer and SONG unit chair, e-mailed to update our Family Day/Blah Day posting.

Rob says:

"I would like to make a clarification on Family Day.

"At this point in time, Family Day is a statutory holiday for Toronto Sun unionized editorial staff over and above the Blah Day created by Doug Creighton.

"That means they received 1 1/2 times if they worked it, or get another day in lieu if they were already scheduled off that day, like me.

"For non-union staff, they lost a floater holiday, which includes Blah Day, to make up for the creation of Family Day, thus meaning they have no net gain."

Thanks for the update, Rob.

It is comforting to know some Toronto Sun staffers are still enjoying Doug's generous Blah Day gesture.
