Also... This is something I pieced together from second-hand accounts, so take it with a certain grain of salt. But, from what I understand, back when suburban papers' sale to Tribune was announced, the editors and reporters were pretty much sent to the Tribune Tower as fast as possible, but the page designers had to stay behind. For several months, they weren't allowed to communicate with Tribune editors, and nobody would tell them what would happen to them... until the transition was complete around February 2015 and they were all unceremoniously fired.

The fact that all of this flew under the radar makes it even worse.

There were in fact five page designers who were kept in limbo. At first we were told that it was just a bureaucratic mess-up - "someone forgot to put their names on the list of employees making the move" - and then ... when we realized neither company gave a crap about these five, we tried to negotiate them spaces at the Trib. No go.
