The Guild said today that it expects about 100 staffers to accept a voluntary buyout from the Chron by Tuesday’s deadline. If 150 Guild members don’t take the buyout, the Chron plans to make up the difference with layoffs.

“These job cuts are expected to hit the newsroom particularly hard, but Guild-represented commercial departments also will be affected,” a statement posted by the Guild said.
