20 Minutes strike against job cuts

Last Thursday French free daily 20 Minutes was not published because the staff went on a 24 hours strike to protest against the plans to cut jobs at the free daily.

The plans involved cutting 18 jobs at the paper by not renewing the temporary jobs at 20 Minutes. The management and the staff are now negotiating a revised plan for saving costs. Subeditors and chiefs of some departments might lose their jobs.

The paper also wants to reduce the page count from 24 to 16. (Electron Libre, Le Monde)
