Here's Who The Times Is Laying Off

From an internal Seattle Times memo obtained by SW: "As we explained, the first list is people who have been informed that they will be laid off because their job functions are being reduced or eliminated. They are: Ashley Bach, Diane Brooks, Jordan Dawson, Rachel Dooley, Sherry Grindeland, Judy Groom, William Holden, Karen Johnson, Janica Lockhart, Stephen Norris, Amy Roe, Christina Siderius, Cece Sullivan, Lynn Thompson, Lauren Vane, Diane Wright.

The second list is positions that we designated for possible layoff in our required communication to the Guild. However, this list may bear little resemblance to the ultimate reality. Each of the people in these positions has been advised as to his/her likely vulnerability of layoff. Those positions are: Desk Editor (4), Reporter (4), Photographer, Lead News Assistant, News Resident, News Page Designer (2), Editorial Cartoonist.

Depending on the number of accepted Expressions of Interest we get from people willing to leave voluntarily, the least senior people in these categories may or may not lose their jobs involuntarily. We will know that next week."
