Star Tribune union asks editor to reconsider downsizing plan

Strib editor Nancy Barnes's workforce reduction plan includes "the painful and ill-advised elimination of an entire craft -- copy editing," says the Star Tribune Newspaper Guild. "A-scale copy editors represent 424 years of service to the Star Tribune; we believe their loss will likely affect the quality of our newspaper and website." The union tells the editor: "We believe that retaining some editing and production positions would make the transition to a smaller operation smoother and less traumatic to those employees remaining."
