NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey’s largest newspaper is offering more buyouts to employees as it faces mounting financial pressure.

In a memo to employees, the publisher of The Star-Ledger of Newark said the newspaper is expected to lose about $10 million this year. It lost about $9 million last year.

Publisher Richard Vezza wrote that full-time employees will be offered a buyout that will pay them one year’s salary plus medical benefits.

Salaries would be adjusted and some job duties could be combined, Vezza said in the memo, adding that he will meet with union officials to discuss cutbacks.

In the fall of 2008, publisher George Arwady threatened to sell or close the newspaper if it couldn’t reach an agreement with its drivers union. An agreement was reached, and more than 300 full-time, nonunion employees agreed to a buyout, including nearly half of the 334 editorial employees.

Unlike the 2008 buyout push, there is no threat to close the paper this time, Vezza said.
