Republican plans layoffs

The daily and Sunday Republican announced Monday it will reduce its workforce and restructure some of its operations as a result of a deteriorating economy.

Publisher Larry A. McDermott told employees in a letter that 22 full-time represented positions and 14 part-time positions would be eliminated.

In the newsroom, some editing and clerical positions will be eliminated, but the newspaper will maintain its current level of reporting staff for news and sports. The newspaper has the largest reporting staff in Western Massachusetts.
