Digital First Media Gives Layoff Notices To at Least 24 Journalists
Posted: 3/21/2014  |  By: Jim Romensko |
The Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia says layoff notices were given to 24 employees of the Digital First Media-owned Delaware County Daily Times, Norristown Times Herald, the Pottstown Mercury, and the Trentonian. (Are there other DFM papers affected?)

Bill Ross, executive director of the Philly Guild, tells me Digital First Media had a no-layoffs clause for the initial year of the journalists’ contracts, “and has now decided to eliminate positions as revenue continues to decline.”
