Jobs are at risk at the Press Association after plans were announced to restructure its TV listings business.
PA has refused to confirm the numbers affected, but it is understood up to 27 members of staff at its Howden office in East Yorkshire are at risk of redundancy.
The agency supplies TV listings to most national and regional newspaper groups although some of the work has already been outsourced to external providers.
It has been claimed that the restructure plan could also see the organisation selling-off some of its office space in Howden although PA has declined to comment on this.
A spokeswoman for PA told HTFP: “(On Thursday) we announced a restructuring proposal in our TV Listings business.
“We will shortly be entering into consultations with our staff to discuss these plans before any final decisions are made. We have no further comments to make at this stage.”
The move comes after two former PA journalists settled out of court in October following Mirror Group’s decision to outsource TV listings from PA to French sub-editing contractor PM81 in 2012.
Clare Hoppett and Kath Haigh were left jobless and without redundancy compensation by the move, and had been due to take their cases to an employment tribunal before a settlement was reached with PM81.
