The New York Times is working to stop staff from rebelling against the leadership at the media outlet.

According to The New York Post:

The New York Times is scrambling to quell a staff rebellion at its metro desk after the section’s editor, Cliff Levy, unleashed a blistering email to staffers last week, saying the section had “lost its footing” and was in need of “urgent” change.

The News Guild of New York, which represents the 40-plus journalists in the section, called Levy’s memo a “public fragging” by Times management and said his offer of “voluntary” buyouts was “an unexpected threat to our journalism and our jobs.”

“This public fragging of journalists by a Times manager with a manufactured narrative of staff obstinacy should make every decent member of management cringe,” the guild said in a late Thursday memo to its members. “It has been met with disgust by rank-and-file journalists across the newsroom.”

A town hall meeting with Times executive editor Dean Baquet was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday.

It is unclear if the Times will be able to appease staff members but it is reported that government officials are taking notice of the turmoil.
