Globe Cuts: Quality Paper Needs Quality Workforce

    OTTAWA, Jan. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - The Globe and Mail will continue to be a
quality newspaper in an economic downturn, the question is will it return its
workforce to pre-meltdown levels in order to protect that brand, say Canada's
national media union.
    "We understand that the Globe is not insulated from the economy. Our
concern is that in order to maintain its market place, it needs to ensure a
quality workforce. We want from the Globe and other media outlets a commitment
that they will restore their employment level once the market comes back - a
prediction which even the Globe's financial columnists announce, "said Peter
Murdoch, Vice-President Media for the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers
    CEP's Ontario regional Vice-President Bob Huget say that he worries that
the economic decline is being used by a number of companies for job reduction
in the short term by industries which will be coming back in the long term.
    "Industry and government must look beyond the effects of a financial
boondoggle and restore its confidence in the market."
