Nineteen veteran journalists at the Star Tribune are taking a buyout
and leaving the paper under a contract clause triggered by the closing
of the sale of the paper last week to Glen Taylor.
journalists, members of the Newspaper Guild, took advantage of the union
clause that called for up to 26 weeks of severance pay for those
leaving upon a sale. They're leaving a newsroom of about 250 people.
Most will leave July 18.
