Talk of layoffs at the Mercury News
Mercury News management is threatening layoffs if it can't get concessions from unionized workers, the Guild reports in an update to its members. Among the concessions sought is a four-month freeze on the accrual of vacation time and the ability to impose a one-week unpaid furlough. The talk of layoffs comes amid reports of declines in ad revenue in November and the first half of December, the update said. Two part-time sales assistants have already been laid off, the update said.
