Lee outsources California finance jobs to Illinois

A May 18 e-mail from Hanford (Calif.) Sentinel publisher Manuel Collazo announces further finance department consolidations. The Sentinel's finance department will be outsourced to The Pantagraph in Bloomington, Ill. -- about 2,000 miles and two time zones away. Collazo says employees will be laid off on May 28, but does not say how many.

Collazo's announcement:
This afternoon we announced a difficult transition within our Finance department. We will begin participating in a Lee-wide finance regionalization program effective May 31st. Many of the tasks that we perform locally will be consolidated within a regional finance center housed in Bloomington, IL at The Pantagraph, a sister Lee newspaper. Unfortunately, as a result several of the current positions within the finance department will be eliminated effective next Friday, May 28th so this will directly impact the employees in these positions. More details regarding the transition will be forthcoming as they are available. As with any of the difficult situations we have dealt with as a team this year, the expectation is that we will all handle the situation with the utmost professionalism. If you have any or receive any questions regarding this announcement please direct them to me at the office number below or Peggy Chapman at 760.739.6610.

Thank you
