According to the National Union of Journalists, three jobs are at risk – two staff photographers and a picture desk role – and those affected may learn their fate today.
Should the proposals go ahead it will leave one photographer covering the West Wales area and four covering the city of Swansea and surrounding area.
Evening Post editor Jonathan Roberts, pictured, said: “The structure of the photographic team in Wales is currently being reviewed.
“I cannot confirm numbers at this stage as discussions are taking place with employees who may be affected.”
The Post’s NUJ represenative Jason Evans commented: “The NUJ opposes these photographic redundancies – good news pictures are the lifeblood of a newspaper, and a vital part of what we do online.
“The cutting of skilled photographers is a blow to the paper, a loss to our readers and is devastating for staff morale.
“The South Wales Evening Post covers a large part of South West Wales and these cuts will put even more pressure on existing staff, who will inevitably have to pick-up the extra work.
“And the timing of the redundancies – coming just days before Christmas – could hardly be worse.”
In recent weeks publishers Newsquest and Johnston Press have both announced redundancies among their photographic staff at their titles across the country.
Reporters at Stourbridge Newsquest NUJ chapel this week resolved to refuse to undertake photographic jobs after a plan to cut four photographer roles down to one full-time equivalent across the publisher’s Worcester division was revealed.
