Shop talk

TellZell is exhorting his/her/their colleagues at the LA Times to meet tonight at the Redwood Bar & Grill to discuss unionizing and other ways to push back against job cuts. Also, talk of more newsroom cuts continues to pick up steam. Here's what TZ has to say about it:

By now, most of you have heard the rumors of another round of layoffs. There are many different flavors. Some say Sam wants the paper at 600 editorial staffers. Others say 550. Whatever the case, we're talking about another hundred or more jobs cut. Do you feel lucky?

Meanwhile, union reps are trying to stir up interest at the non-union LANG newspapers. The local guild making visits to the Daily Breeze in Torrance and the Sun in San Bernardino.
