Pressroom Buzz has learned that still another buyout is being
sought at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel – the second one this year.
A letter went out this week offering two weeks for every year of service and six
months of paid health insurance, which is more than the minimum provided for in
the recently signed contract between the newspaper and its newsroom union.
Insiders say that this buyout is offered across all departments at the
newspaper, not just in the newsroom. Additionally, insiders speculate that it doesn't appear to be targeting a large number of people – but
it’s anyone’s guess how many will actually apply.
