Ronan Early, in the Times Ireland edition, reports that the 12 staff members of the RTÉ Guide have been told they cannot apply for voluntary redundancy because the magazine is being sold.
RTÉ staff were briefed by management yesterday at Studio Seven in the Montrose complex. Among many questions asked by staff, one concerned the RTÉ Guide staff and whether they could apply for voluntary redundancy.
The meeting was told that because the RTÉ Guide was being sold “as a package” staff could not apply for voluntary redundancy.
Sources told The Times this “caused surprise” because “the RTÉ Guide makes money”.
