More Buyouts Could Be Coming to NY Times

The hits keep coming.

Staffers at The New York Times might be in for another round of buyouts. According to the New York Post, Times execs were hoping more editors—instead of reporters—would’ve accepted buyouts in July’s round. Therefore, more offers might be on their way.

Last month, 50 Times staffers took a buyout. About half of those leaving were “reporters, domestic correspondents, columnists or critics” according to the Times’ union.

While there were also about 30 non-union members taking buyouts—putting the total at roughly 80—the Times is hoping to cut staff by about 200 by the end of the year.
