Buffalo News Editor Margaret Sullivan details the “all-out effort” of News staff to cover the crash of Flight 3407 in today’s paper.
The piece takes on a new layer of importance in light of the job situation at the News.
Monday the Buffalo Newspaper Guild Local-CWA Local 31026 will be meeting with union members to update them on information they expect to get from News executives, according to the union’s website. Friday the union issued a statement that it is,
“extremely disappointed that Publisher Stan Lipsey would send out a memo regarding potential layoffs before the Guild has had the opportunity to work with managers to avoid these losses.”
When all is said and done, it could be that some of the people who helped cover the plane crash tragedy may be facing a crisis of their own–unemployment.
