Greens say 'keep talking' to save Norfolk newspaper jobs

 
I welcome reports that management at Archant has reduced the number of jobs it is intending to cut in Norfolk from 54 to 34. But I hope that Archant executives will try to further reduce this, to protect the quality of local newspapers.
 
'It is good news that Archant executives have revised their plans for redundancies in Norfolk, but 34 job losses would still be a massive cutback of editorial staff. It would raise serious doubts about the capacity of local papers to provide a quality news service.
 
The recession is no doubt affecting advertising revenues but the company has recently anounced £22m profits. I urge Archant to continue talking with unions and to look for every opportunity to save further jobs.
