    Default Philadelphia Inquirer shutters printing plant, cuts 528 jobs

    The Philadelphia Inquirer said it will lay off 528 people when it shuts down the printing plant where the paper and the Philadelphia Daily News have been printed since 1992.

    The grisly headcount, filed with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor in recent days, is slightly higher than 500 layoffs that were expected when publisher Lisa Hughes made the surprise announcement to staff on Oct. 9 that the Inquirer was closing the Schuylkill printing plant and outsourcing to a Gannett-owned plant in New Jersey.

    The Inquirer said it is negotiating with a buyer for the site, but declined to disclose details. Separately, the Inquirer said it was also laying off a handful of journalists. John Doyle, president of Teamsters local 628 which represents over 300 of the workers said he was “blindsided” by the announcement last month.
