(ComputerWorld) Tribune Publishing Co., a major newspaper chain, is laying off as many as 200 IT employees as it shifts work overseas.
The firm, which owns the Los Angeles Times, The Baltimore Sun, Chicago Tribune, Hartford Courant and many other media properties, told IT employees in early April that it's moving work to India-based Tata Consultancy Services.
Interestingly, the Tribune IT employees were notified within weeks of a similar announcement involving IT employees at the McClatchy Company, another major newspaper chain.
