Media Job Losses in Europe
In order to present a comprehensive overview of the current job losses in the media industry at the coming EFJ Annual Meeting in May, the EFJ secretariat is preparing a working paper with records of job losses across Europe since 2012. EFJ affiliates were asked to contribute data to complete the working paper so that the EFJ Steering Committee can develop new strategies to fight back cuts.
Preliminary results show that Spain was hardest hit with nearly 4000 media staff losing their jobs in 2012. This is followed by 800 and 600 job losses in Croatia and Germany respectively. Elsewhere in Europe, the number of job losses remains below 500 in each country according to the current data received.
Please help us complete the data and send us information regarding job losses in the media. Contact: Rebecca Weicht
