The redundancies follow the surprise departure last week of Birmingham Post editor and publisher Dan Mason.
Meanwhile, IPC journalists have failed to secure NUJ recognition after a low turnout.
Out of 744 ballot forms sent out, just 271 were returned. A total of 178 voted in favour of recognition and 93 against.
Under the terms of the agreement, the NUJ is unable to re-apply for recognition for another three years. A spokesman for the NUJ said the union would continue to support its members on an individual basis.
