Newsroom branch at Kaleva: disappointment and concern at redundancy talks outcome

The UJF newsroom branch at the Kaleva media concern has expressed its concern over prospects for maintaining the quality journalism of Kaleva newspapers. Redundancy talks have concluded with cuts to expenses and employees. The cuts will mainly impact on editorial operations. The talks ended with a decision to cut operations by 11 person years. Nine of these will be realized using retirement arrangements and other individual provisions. The branch expresses concerns that the cuts to staff and the abandonment of the procurement of journalistic content cannot take place without adversely impacting on the quality of journalistic content. The branch also expresses disappointment that following the redundancy talks management will proceed with two full job cuts. A further impact of the staff cuts is that the newsroom workload will increase for remaining employees.
