Long Island-based Newsday is reportedly negotiating with The New York Times to use the Times's printing plant and have Times transport carry Newsday to Long Island, the Long Island Press reports

The move could mean layoffs of 100 or so of Newsday's unionized employees, according to the Long Island Press. Union contracts expired on Dec. 31 and negotiations resulted in a tentative deal in January.

The paper may relocate from its longtime Melville office, on Long Island, the Long Island Press says.

"We are in the early stages of conversations with the union leadership about exploring possible changes to our business," says Newsday spokeswoman Kim Grabina-Como, told the Long Island Press, without providing details. Newsday is the sixth largest newspaper in the nation, according to Agility PR Daily print circulation has fallen to less than 175,000, according to the latest Alliance for Audited Media report.
