‘The Sun’ in Baltimore Cuts 55 Newsroom Jobs

By:

The Baltimore Sun says it has eliminated about 100 jobs in its latest round of job cuts.

Union leaders said the cuts included 55 newsroom jobs.

Baltimore Sun Media Group spokeswoman Judy Berman declined today to give an exact number of eliminated jobs but said the company had met its goal for cutting the work force by about 100 with a minimum of layoffs.

Local union leader Tanika White said 43 newsroom employees accepted buyouts, two reporters agreed to voluntary layoffs and nine other news employees were laid off involuntarily. She said one manager was transferred to The Sun’s community papers.

The 171-year-old newspaper had about 280 newsroom employees before the cuts. It is owned by Chicago-based Tribune Co.
