Concerns have been raised about staffing levels at a Scottish daily with the departure of sub-editors who are not expected to be replaced.
The National Union of Journalists claimed two people were leaving the subs desk at The Herald and “unsustainable pressure” was building because of staffing levels.
Paul said he wanted resources at the title to be moved around to help the situation.
He said: “It is not a major issue at the moment but if they are not replaced it will put pressure on people.”
One of the sub-editors is understood to have already left, while another is in the process of leaving.
NUJ Scotland tweeted: “High level talks at Newsquest (Tue) to discuss staffing levels and filling of vacancies as unsustainable pressure builds on subs at Herald.”
The Herald was relaunched with a new look and a smaller font size a few weeks ago.
Herald and Times Group managing director Tim Blott declined to comment following the meeting.
