The company chose to accept two buyouts of Guild members, but it is not using the savings to keep a well-respected photographer.
Instead the newspaper will fill a reporting position.
A page designer in editorial and a district manager in circulation had their buyout offer accepted.
Despite that savings, the company chose to let go a photographer originally given notice two weeks ago at the same time as Editorial Cartoonist John de Rosier.
“We are certainly glad to see a reporter hired to replace Dayelin Roman,” Guild President Tim O’Brien said. “But we had hoped our negotiation of a buyout and finding two willing takers would enable the photographer to keep his job.”
Instead of losing two members, the Guild finds itself losing four and gaining back one.
A manager who also sought the buyout did not have his request accepted, the company said.
