Talks Start on Newsquest Redundancies

Leave a comment

Talks are under way between the union and senior Newsquest management over proposed 20% savings including redundancies and restructuring of editorial areas.

Progress was made in providing some clarity for members considering VR, particularly regarding photographic gear and using average earnings for calculating terms for part time staff. An audit is taking place on what equipment can be released for photographers considering taking a deal and going freelance, while part time staff have been informed of the calculations situation.

HR have said they are prepared to chase up details for senior staff seeking pension figures and are available to answer any questions about the process.

Union officers are working on draft proposals for editorial restructuring and will be engaging in talks with various desks this week. A further meeting with management has been arranged for next Tuesday.
