Postmedia gives notice of layoffs

Postmedia began serving notice of layoffs at two of its major papers — the Ottawa Citizen and the Montreal Gazette — on Tuesday.
The layoff notices include nine positions at the Gazette, and six at the Citizen. Debbie Cole, president of the Ottawa Newspaper Guild, confirmed one photographer, two reporters and one sections editor are among the six positions cut at the Citizen Tuesday.
The Financial Post is also reporting that “about six people” will receive similar notices at the Windsor Star.
In an interview, Postmedia’s vice-president of communications, Phyllise Gelfand, confirmed that the layoff notices were announced today and that they are part of the cost-cutting measures the company announced in October. (iPolitics)
