Progress at Scotsman Talks

Leave a comment

Following a series of meetings and discussions between management and union it appears the savings required have been achieved removing the threat of compulsory redundancies at The Scotsman titles. Further discussions are required around final re-deployments, workload and shifts but progress has been made in a number of areas including the need to address salary anomalies covering responsibility pay.

A restructuring plan is also being explored for the weekly titles based in Orchard Brae with an announcement due this week. It is expected the plan will tie in the weeklies to the Edinburgh Evening News through a Newsroom of the Future arrangement, sharing copy in features and news in particular.
