Editorial staffers at The New York Times will stage a walk-out from the newsroom Thursday afternoon to protest potential layoffs and staff reductions, according to an announcement from their union.
“New York Times editors, reporters and staff will come together to leave the newsroom and their offices in protest of management’s elimination of copy editors,” reads the NewsGuild of New York announcement.
“After a year and a half of uncertainty about their futures, New York Times editors and staff have expressed feelings of betrayal by management. The staff has been offered buyouts and if a certain number of buyouts is not reached, layoffs will ensue for the editorial staff and potentially reporters as well.”
Earlier this week, NewsGuild President Grant Glickson penned an open letter to New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet to share how the union feels about the layoffs, calling it a “humiliating process” and noting that the number of editors being let go “dumbfoundingly unrealistic.”
