Hmm. Doesn't say why this was done.
More than 30 Teamsters were laid off from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Sunday, officials from the Teamsters Local Union No. 211 said Tuesday in a news release.

Union officials said the layoffs included three pressmen who were offered six weeks of severance pay.

The union responded by filing a complaint in federal court to, among other things, ensure the workers receive six months of wages as stipulated in their contract.
The Teamsters and other unions have been trying to negotiate a contract for nearly three years, according to the news release.
