San Diego paper will eliminate jobs

December 05, 2007|From Times Wire Services

The San Diego Union-Tribune, owned by Copley Press Inc., said it would cut at least 43 newsroom jobs and 40 other positions to reduce costs in response to "economic challenges" in the newspaper industry.

The company, which has 1,422 employees, disclosed a voluntary buyout plan for nonunion workers in a memo Monday. If the number of applications falls short, the Union-Tribune will lay off people, according to the memo posted on the independent online newspaper site Voiceofsandiego.org.
