Sacramento Bee Chosen, As Predicted, For Copy Desk Consolidation

McClatchy has decided it will consolidate the copy desks at the Sacramento Bee and four other California papers. Wednesday, the company announced it had chosen the location of the consolidated desk: Sacramento.

It is “undoubtedly good news for the employees of the Sacramento Bee and the Sacramento community,” writes Guild chair Ed Fletcher, but “the news is less rosy for our brethren in Modesto and Merced.”

Bee management has previously said that the consolidation would create 20-30 jobs, a mix of full and part-time, in Sacramento. But of course it also means that many of the copy editors elsewhere will not be transitioning to Sacramento.
