NUJ expresses 'grave disappointment' at job cuts announcement at Landmark Media, Ireland
16 April 2014
The NUJ has expressed grave disappointment at the announcement by Landmark Media of major job cuts across the company.
Landmark Media own the Irish Examiner, the Evening Echo, The Carlow/Kildare/Laois Nationalist, The Waterford News and Star, The Western People and The Roscommon Herald, Boyle.
Staff are being briefed today on the redundancies, which will have major implications for the Irish Examiner, Evening Echo and the group's regional operation.
Nicola Coleman, NUJ Ireland organiser, said:
"We are gravely disappointed at the announcement and by the manner of the announcement. The union will be consulting our representatives and members at local level and will be seeking to minimise the job losses. We are opposed to compulsory redundancies and would expect consultation on a voluntary redundancy package."
