Times employees and former employees received
a survey from the Pfaffinger Foundation.
Many employees were alarmed, assuming the Tribune Company had seized the sizeable charity, but this is not the case, yet.
I contacted the CEO of the foundation, Stephen C. Meier, for additional information and he replied:
Recently Pfaffinger has been writing individuals who retired or terminated at the former Times Mirror newspapers in recent years. We ask them to contact us to see if they are eligible for assistance. Experience has shown that some folks forget about Pfaffinger once they leave.
We would suggest that anyone who gets our questionnaire should fill it out and return it in the postage-paid envelope.
I wrote back to Mr. Meier regarding terminated employees seeking assistance, with no response at this writing, as I was denied aid because I was a black listed terminated Los Angeles Times employee. Has the Pfaffinger Foundation realized many terminated employees were let go to ease the financial burden facing the newspaper, and not the workers the Tribune Company has portrayed many to be?
As soon as I hear something from Mr. Meier regarding the status of terminated employees I will share with you.
