EASTON, Pa. (AP) — The Express-Times in Easton has announced a new round of layoffs that will mean the loss of 12 full-time jobs.
President and Publisher Lou Stancampiano says the moves come as the newspaper eliminates its production department. It will now be printed in Staten Island and get trucked to Easton from the Staten Island Advance. Both papers are owned by New Jersey-based Advance Publications Inc.
The newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/VKzPfW ) affected employees, including press operators and mailroom staff, were being notified Wednesday. The first edition to be printed in Staten Island will be June 3.
Stancampiano says there are no plans to change the daily print schedule from seven days a week, as some other Advance newspapers have done.
The Express-Times also cut about 20 jobs in January.
