35 More Layoffs at Philadelphia Newspapers?
Less than two weeks ago, 19 employees of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and Philly.com found out that they were on the layoff list, with their last day of work scheduled for March 31st. Many of them have already left, while their union, the Newspaper Guild, has said that it intends to fight management’s decision. Today, Dave Davies at Newsworks writes that a “credible source” told him that even more positions could be in jeopardy. According to Davies’s report, the group that has offered to pay $57 million for Philadelphia Media Network may be looking to make as many as 35 more cuts. [Newsworks]
