El Diario La Prensa, the nation's oldest Spanish-language daily newspaper and the largest in New York, handed out pink slips to 12 staff members Friday.

The layoffs came a little more than a week after the 101-year-old daily relaunched its print edition to counteract its declining circulation and more than three months after the Newspaper Guild of New York filed an unfair labor practice charge against ImpreMedia, El Diario’s parent company, for allegedly threatening to fire employees over their loyalty to the union at an editorial meeting in February.
