Layofff notices going out today at Star

Dateline: Tue 19 Aug 2008

The process of notifying 23 people at the Star of layoffs has begun.

Employees are being notified directly; the Guild is not getting a hit list.

However, the secretive process raises concerns for the Guild that Gannett is not honoring seniority. Are older workers being picked off in greater numbers than younger ones?

Talking to Human Resources at the paper is like talking to a voice mail message, said one staffer. There is no real conversation. So right now, it's a lot of worry/wait, wait/worry.

What a lousy way to run a business. Especially a communications one...
