Buyouts offered at the Los Angeles Times

Buyouts offered to workers at LA Times printing facility

The printing facility for The Los Angeles Times in downtown L.A.
Employees at the Los Angeles Times printing facility were offered buyouts, union officials confirmed to KPCC on Tuesday.
Ronnie Pineda, president of the Graphic Communications Conference of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 140-N, said the buyouts could impact workers at the facility from printing press operators to color specialists who make sure the colors appear correctly in the newspaper.
It is unclear exactly how many workers qualify for the buyout. Edward Padgett, the union's recording secretary, estimated 73 people would qualify in the pressroom. He said the buyout offers up to 40 weeks of pay, with one week of pay per year of service.
