6 jobs being cut at CBC Saskatchewan
Employees to get layoff notices later this month
CBC Saskatchewan is cutting six full-time positions as a result of budget reductions.
Managers told local employees today that the cuts could affect staff in the English-language service's news, current affairs and music departments.
The numbers could change if there are cuts announced later in communications and sales, managers said.
As well, the reductions announced Thursday don't cover Radio-Canada, CBC's French-language service, which could announce Saskatchewan cuts at a later date.
CBC hasn't said which of the Saskatchewan positions are affected, but said the goal is to ensure programs aren't harmed.
Redundancy notices will go out by the end of the month, the company said.
Nationally, the company said that due to revenue shortfalls and funding cuts, CBC and Radio-Canada will shed a total of 657 positions over two years.
