Job losses at the Mirror

Issue No. 2206

Bosses at the Mirror, Sunday Mirror and the People have announced over 200 job losses.

The cuts also mean the Scottish version of these titles will no longer be printed.

It’s time for a fightback.

Chief executives at Trinity Mirror, the group which owns the titles, said last week that there would be cuts – but not in staff.

This was a deception and should be met with industrial action.

Jeremy Dear, general secretary of the journalists’ NUJ union said, “It’s disgraceful that against a background of making more than £70 million in profit last year, and of paying millions in remuneration to a handful of executives, the company should now throw more than a quarter of its workforce onto the scrapheap.”
