    Dozens of New York Times staffers walked out of the newsroom Thursday in an act of protest over proposed layoffs.

    The job action started around 3 p.m. at the newspapers’ Midtown office near the Port Authority Bus Terminal on 42nd St.

    NewsGuild president Grant Glickson rallied the newsroom before the job action — flanked by state AFL-CIO president Mario Cilento and other labor leaders.
