Layoff Notices Handed Out At Vancouver Sun And Province.
3 days ago
Postmedia began handing out layoff notices to 54 employees today at the Vancouver Sun and Province, including 29 journalists. "Today is going to be a tough day for all of us," wrote Unifor Local 2000 president Brian Gibson on the union website. "For those that receive notice today just know we are all so very sorry."
Plans for the layoffs were first announced two weeks ago and come on the heels of 38 additional buyouts at the newspapers in January. Earlier today, CKNW’s Jeremy Lye spoke with media professor Alfred Hermida at the UBC School of Journalism about the layoffs and the state of journalism.
