Pittsburgh Post-Gazette seeks to extend buyout offers to all Newspaper Guild members

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is seeking to extend “voluntary separation agreements” to all its employees who are represented by the Pittsburgh Newspapers Guild.

That includes approximately 200 newsroom employees who work at the newspaper as reporters, editors, photographers, artists and other support staff.

Thursday, Guild president R.J. Hufnagel emailed guild members at the PG announcing a meeting Thursday night about the plans, which come only a week after the company reached buyout agreements with 22 guild members negotiated by the union and the company.

He offered no estimate of how many more employees the company needed to take a buyout.
