El Diario Lays Off 12
Posted: 6/17/2014 | By: Nicole Levy | Capital New York
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.
