Downsizing at the Los Angeles Times

Chatter from the Los Angeles Times Orange County Production Facility claims the Advertising Department may have had a visit from the grim reaper this afternoon. The caller stated they would call back with the body count if this were indeed true.

Last night the Times Olympic Facility had a rash of sick calls, either many were ill, or they don’t believe management will pay them for their unused sick days when they are dismissed? But just incase this trend continues, many of us have been requested to standby our phones for overtime shifts tonight, Friday night, and Saturday night.

This morning at 10:45 a.m. human resources paid a visit to the Olympic Plant, not certain if anyone was axed at this moment?

Kevin Roderick states that some employees in the Editorial Department are being offered buyouts, instead of layoffs.
