Another Niagara Region Sun Media newspaper got hammered today with 18 pre-press employees at the Welland Tribune shown the door.
TSF tipsters say the work is being sent to Woodstock and Barrie centres.
"Another Black Monday today," says one of several TSF tipsters. "In addition to 4 creative people being laid off, the whole composing in Welland was let go. That's 18 people!"
Another tipster writes:
"The work is being farmed out to Woodstock and Barrie, but in typical Sun Media fashion, the people in Woodstock (at the least) don't really know how this new process is going to work."
The Welland Tribune, St. Catharines Standard and Niagara Falls Review have been cutback targets for several years now.
As one tipster says: "Time to start picking a casket, these papers are done."
