Trinity Mirror media workers facing redundancy
A group of media professionals in Scotland could require expert employment law advice after it emerged they are facing redundancy.
Trinity Mirror has revealed today (June 14th) that it has now begun a consultation on plans to set up a single production hub for its 17 weekly titles, which are currently based in the Daily Record's Glasgow offices.
The body's Scottish arm - Media Scotland - is set to oversee the merger of three of its publications north of the border as the company looks to restructure its operations in Scotland in order to reduce costs.
Consequently, seven production positions are thought to be under threat, as well as two photographic roles and potentially 12 copywriting jobs.
Alan Rennie, editor-in-chief of Media Scotland, noted that while this represents a "significant change" in the company's business, it is "necessary for our future".
“We have today entered into a period of consultation with all affected staff and our aim is to achieve this restructure through voluntary means," he added.
