Up to a dozen layoffs at the Chron

The NorCal Guild's online bulletin reports that the Chron laid off up to a dozen employees earlier this month. They worked in finance, circulation and SFGate. The Guild noted that management wouldn't explain why the cuts were made in light of the company's announcements suggesting the paper's finances were improving. "It does seem clear, however, that The Chronicle has a long way to go before achieving enough financial stability for anyone to say the era of layoffs is finally over," the Guild bulletin said.

you missed the real story -- the chronicle wants to outsource everything possible, which means fewer jobs in the bay area ... that's why finance moved to houston ...

... just as web production did a few months ago, apparently.
