90 jobs under threat at Northcliffe’s printing press in Stoke

By Press Gazette

Up to 90 printing jobs are under threat at Northcliffe’s printing press in Stoke when its daily title The Sentinel is published.

In a story on Northcliffe’s thisisstaffordshire website, management said the future of Harmsworth Printing (Stoke), a sister company of Northcliffe, was under review due to the “reducing requirements for printed copies of The Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and the DMGT Group's regional titles”.

A 30-day consultation with staff will begin in November.

Harmsworth Printing Ltd's managing director John Bird said: "Harmsworth Printing Ltd continues to be under great pressure as a result of the reducing requirements for printed copies of The Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and the DMGT Group's regional titles.

"Unfortunately, this has necessitated a further review of our operations and, in particular, of our press utilisation."

The Sentinel's editorial and advertising departments are not affected by this consultation process.
