cleveland plain dealer

  • The Plain Dealer is dissolving its news guild and will publish coverage exclusively from cleveland.com. The paper announced the changes Tuesday in a cleveland.com column from Editor-in-Chief Tim Warsinskey. The four remaining journalists at The Plain Dealer have been offered jobs at cleveland.com to continue their work, according to Warsinskey.
  • The company managing cleveland.com has announced furloughs, pay cuts and additional changes for employees in an effort to save money during the pandemic, according to Advance Local. Workers making more than $35,000 annually will receive pay cuts ranging from 2 percent to 20 percent depending on income level, CEO Caroline Harrison wrote in a memo to employees. The reductions will be in effect through December, Harrison said, though there will be a re-evaluation of the situation in September.
  • Updated: 5:37 p.m., Tuesday, April 7, 2020 Most of the remaining staff at The Plain Dealer will no longer cover news in Cleveland or Cuyahoga and Summit counties, instead shifting to become a "bureau" covering outlying areas. The announcement comes just days after 22 staff were laid off. The 14 remaining reporters will cover five Northeast Ohio counties: Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina and Portage, according to a statement from the Northeast Ohio Newspaper Guild Local 1.
  • Updated: 10:56 a.m., Tuesday, March 10, 2020. The Plain Dealer will lay off 22 staffers later this month, including 18 members of the Cleveland newspaper’s union, Local 1 of the Northeast Ohio Newspaper Guild. The layoffs are “strictly financial,” Editor-in-Chief Tim Warsinskey said in a statement published on cleveland.com, news website that is also owned by the paper’s sister company, Advance Local.
  • The Plain Dealer is expected to notify 14 Northeast Ohio Newspaper Guild, Local 1 members Monday that they no longer work for the company. The newspaper announced the layoffs two weeks ago. Over the weekend, the union’s membership ratified an agreement reached between the Guild and Plain Dealer management that would affect “those whose jobs are being eliminated and those who will be left behind,” according to a statement from the Guild.
  • Twenty-nine union employees at the Plain Dealer —mostly copy editors, page designers, and illustrators —will be laid off after March 2019, according to George Rodrigue, the paper’s Editor and President. The plan is to outsource most of those jobs to a New Yorked-based company called Advance Local, which is a subsidiary of the PD’s parent company, Advance Publications.
