  • Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen lose 15 positions in Postmedia layoff

    Media union CWA Canada says it's been told by Postmedia that the company plans to cut 15 positions at the Ottawa Citizen and Montreal Gazette newspapers.

    CWA Canada said Tuesday that the cuts, combined with recent buyouts, will reduce Postmedia's workforce by about 20 per cent on top of a 50 per cent cut in previous years.

    The company has slashed more than 3,000 jobs in the last six years.

    CWA Canada President Martin O'Hanlon said the $2.3 million in retention bonuses paid to company CEO Paul Godfrey and other executives could have saved as many as 40 jobs.
