That these discussions happen every year is absolutely accurate — end of fiscal and calendar years are always circled on our calendar. We have come to expect small reorganizations in all IAPE-represented departments at Dow Jones. In fact, as our layoff list (http://iape1096.org/info/layoffStatus.php) shows, 46 IAPE-represented employees have been affected by workforce reductions so far this year.
(Many of the Customer Service moves are the result of a transfer of positions from New York to South Brunswick, NJ — employees were given an opportunity to move with those jobs, or receive a layoff package. Net headcount may actually increase once the dust settles.) | More
