Dear CMG members at BuzzFeed,
We have learned that following BuzzFeed’s announcement of job cuts worldwide, CMG members in Canada will be facing layoffs.
Five members have been informed by the company that they are being laid off.
Please know that your fellow CMG members stand in solidarity with all of you. We know that layoffs always take a toll, not only on those who are directly affected but also on co-workers who remain employed.
Our union is working to ensure members’ rights are respected in accordance with our collective agreement.
We are in contact with BuzzFeed Canada management, obtaining more information about the situation and working to ensure members are treated fairly in this difficult time. We will keep you updated.
Annick R. Forest
President, Canadian Media Guild
