The Florida Times-Union will cut its non-production workforce by about 10 percent, or around two dozen, the paper reported.

The cuts will include advertising, circulation, newsroom, accounting and administration.

Many of the have disappeared through attrition or transfer, Mark Nusbaum, president of the Times-Union, told the paper.

In December, the paper announced the cutting of more than 50 production positions, as its outsourced its printing and production to Gainesville and Daytona Beach, starting Feb. 12.

“The combined reductions are in response to declining print revenues, particularly from major and national retailers, that have plagued the newspaper industry throughout the country,’’ said Nusbaum. “The Times-Union’s digital revenues have been increasing in recent years, but unfortunately, not fast enough to yet offset the print decreases.

The Times-Union was bought by GateHouse Media in fall 2017, with 10 other dailies the Morris Publishing Group owned.
