Big layoffs coming to the Star

J-Source published a letter to employees from Star publisher John Cruikshank. Here is the part affecting editorial:
"The Toronto Star is launching a Voluntary Separation Program (VSP) for Star employees represented by Unifor.  Details will be provided on Monday in a separate communication to eligible employees. Employees represented by Unifor in the Star’s editorial, finance and syndication functions are eligible to apply if they meet the program terms and conditions.
"In addition, a number of other staff, both union and management, have been advised that their roles are being eliminated due to changes in business conditions. These include roles in the newsroom and other areas of the company.
"These decisions are being made because of the very challenging market conditions that are affecting the Star and other media organizations. They represent our continued commitment to the Star in print while we also continue to expand our digital footprint through and Toronto Star Touch.     
"On behalf of the executive team I want to thank all members of the Star’s staff for their continued commitment and dedication in these challenging times."
