Several colleagues have called or emailed this morning regarding a voluntary separation package they received this morning via United Parcel Service from the Los Angeles Times.
The company is offering one week’s pay for every year of service, with the deadline for applying set at January 5th, 2011, and company separation to occur between January and March of 2011.
My separation package has not arrived, as of this moment, and not certain if this is company wide or just for pressroom employees?
This will not make the employees that were let go earlier this year from the pressroom empty handed very happy.
Will keep you updated as information becomes available.
