The Boston Globe will offer voluntary buyouts to an unspecified number of employees in the next few days, according to emails obtained by Poynter.
“There’s no set number we’re trying to achieve. Most significantly, it’s not meant as a cost-cutting exercise in the newsroom. In fact, when all is said and done, I don’t expect staffing levels here to change much, if at all,” Globe Editor Brian McGrory wrote.
It is the first round of layoffs since the paper came under the ownership of Boston Red Sox owner John Henry in October 2013, according to the Boston Business Journal.
