More CNHI layoffs

    Just saw a post from an old co-worker of mine that he was axed by The Eagle-Tribune ... by far the most talented journalist in that newsroom. Don't know how many in total were let go, but that newsroom has got to be a ghost town by now. In the past 2+ years, every quarter has seen either a furlough or a layoff.

    Sud: You can't forget the required terminology for us CNHIers: We're not allowed to use the term "layoffs" -- we are required to term it "restructuring."

    In all seriousness, though, I'm sorry to hear about your friend. All of us in this company are waiting for the next shoe to fall.

    CNHI has run those papers into the ground.

    Unfortunately, CNHI (and Gannett) employees are living under the top shelf of Imelda Marcos' closet during an earthquake.

    Word is the total is about 35 companywide, a half-dozen or more in the newsroom. Ghost town is an overstatement.

    Is that 35 at Eagle-Tribune Publishing? Or the just E-T proper in North Andover?

    37 positions at the Massachusetts CNHI properties. Which is the former E-T Publishing I guess or whatever the chain was known as when CNHI bought it. Not all f/t not all editorial. Don't know breakdowns.

    I still remember the conversation you and I had about the "restructuring" that was going on when I applied for your opening. Dumbest thing ever.

    Gloucester Daily Times dumped their night editor who had been there for over 30 years and let go of a photog OVER THE PHONE. Newburyport news got rid of two sports reporters, leaving only the sports editor.

    Oh, noes! What are they going to do if you use "layoffs" instead of "restructuring?" Fire you?

    Oh wait ...

    And, piling insult on injury, publisher says don't bet against second-quarter furloughs on top of the layoffs, though no official word on that yet from the overlords of Alabama.
