Post-Gazette to Lay Off 136 Employees

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette plans to lay off 136 employees. The company is reducing its workforce at its Boulevard of the Allies and Preble Avenue locations. Layoffs are expected to begin on or about July 28, 2014 or during the 14-day period thereafter, and bumping rights are not available for affected employees. The layoffs are in keeping with the Post-Gazette's plan to move its long-outdated printing operations out of its headquarters building on the Boulevard of the Allies to a new facility with a new press in the 220,000 square foot former Flabeg building in Clinton Township near Pittsburgh International Airport.

Post-Gazette to Shut Down Downtown Printing Operation; to Consolidate Production Operations; Signs Lease with Buncher Co. to Occupy 245,000-Square-Foot Building in Clinton Commerce Park

A former solar panel manufacturing facility near Pittsburgh International Airport will become the Post-Gazette's new printing plant and distribution and production center. The company has signed a lease with the Buncher Co. to occupy a 245,000-square-foot building in Clinton Commerce Park that was built for Flabeg. The facility will house the Post-Gazette's new printing equipment, which should be ready for use this summer; all production and distribution functions; and financing and information technology offices. The Post-Gazette, will soon be produced in one of the most advanced printing plants. The new building, located in Findlay, also will contain 30,000 square feet of office space as well as showers and a gym. About 175 employees will move into the plant. The new press equipment should start arriving in April, with the goal of having it ready in August. The new technology will deliver a better, more colorful product for readers and advertisers. With the new space, the newspaper will be able to shut down its Downtown printing operation and consolidate all of its production operations under one roof. Editorial and advertising offices are expected to move out of the building next year. The plan is to keep them Downtown.
