Daily Mirror to make 11 redundancies

In the latest round of Trinity Mirror cutbacks, The Daily Mirror is to make 11 staff redundant between its Canary Wharf headquarters and its Scottish office in Glasgow, reports Media Guardian.

It will affect staff working in the features, news and pictures departments and four reporters in the Glasgow office with the paper planning to have only one district reporter in the city.

A spokesman for Trinity Mirror said: “A total of 11 proposed redundancies are being discussed with staff and the BAJ as part of the ongoing review of the Daily Mirror’s editorial structure.”

“We are now in a period of consultation with our employees, however we will continue to try to avoid compulsory redundancies where possible by seeking volunteers and through redeployment.”

In a costcutting exercise earlier this year Trinity Mirror axed 11 subeditors as it integrated some subbing operations across its national titles the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and The People.

In September, Trinity Mirror’s five national newspaper were all put under one management for the first time when managing director of Trinity Mirror‘s Scottish nationals, Mark Hollinshead, took on the newly created role as managing director of all five of the company’s national newspapers as Richard Webb leaves the company.
