Re: Postmedia Townhall
 
We are aware of the Postmedia Townhall meeting that occurred at 11am today. We understand they have indicated they need to make “hard decisions” but little else.

We were briefly notified by Unifor National that a Townhall was scheduled for today but we have not received any details on how this will affect PNG members.
 
We have not heard from the Company to set any meetings to discuss what this might mean for our members.
 
We will inform you of any updates as they become available.

President

 


Today Post Media announced a major restructuring of their operations, that will affect many of our members in the coming weeks.

This is not only a blow to our media members, but also to journalism in Canada.

Andrew MacLeod said today, “that we are in full sync with our Union partners and stakeholders…”

Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Post Media has given the union, nothing more than a brief heads up on their horrible restructuring news. We’ve received no concrete details and we’ve agreed to nothing.  There is absolutely nothing to be in sync with as they further the gutting of journalism in Canada.
