A new round of layoffs

Star Media has begun a new round of layoffs that will affect 11 people covered by the Indianapolis Newspaper Guild’s contract in what the paper’s management calls a “resizing of the organization.”

The breakdown of the layoffs are as such: 8 full-time staffers (2 of which will be custodians from the building services department) and 3 part-time staffers.

No reporters are among those to be laid off.

Guild officers were notified in general terms about the layoffs this morning, but we haven’t yet been given names or job titles of those affected. As such, it is hard to assess the impact this will have on the news operation.

The Guild’s contract covers approximately 100 people — reporters, photographers, copy editors, columnists, clerks, graphic artists, digital and social media specialists and a research librarian.

We will update this note later.
