Rumors: More Layoffs at U-T
Union-Tribune employees continue to talk about more pending layoffs. Pressmen have received a notice that there will be layoffs between August and October because of weakness in both advertising and circulation. These same factors are behind the rumors of more layoffs. At one point, the U-T intended to lease the 4th and 5th floors of the Mission Valley headquarters. Now, there is talk that the first floor is up for lease, too.
