Independent Australia has a story on more empty desks in the tree killer’s lair:
Approximately a dozen call centre staff and 20-30 classifieds staff will be outsourced in the coming months; as well as a number of positions in accounts and pre-press getting cut altogether.
It is understood that similar positions in The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald will share the same fate soon after the Canberra transition has been completed.
The services will be taken over by TeleTech, an American-based Business Process Outsourcing company operating in 24 countries including Canada, Costa Rica and The Philippines. As yet it is unknown where the jobs will be moved to.
