In a deal negotiated by the Chicago Newspaper Guild, the Chicago Sun-Times will reinstate four photographers and pay $2,000 in severance to each photojournalist it canned earlier this year who agrees to waive his or her right to sue the tabloid daily over being sacked, Romanesko.com reported today.

In a cost-cutting move, the Sun-Times shuttered its 28-member photo department in May (see "TUOL" post 5/30/13) and has been illustrating stories with file photos, wire pictures and images snapped by reporters. The four shutterbugs who were rehired may be assigned to any one of the Sun-Times five newspaper units, according to the Romanesko post.
