    According to a source from Singapore Press Holdings, more staff will be informed of their termination as the retrenchment exercise is carried out for the second day on Friday, Oct. 13, 2017.

    The Straits Times only reported that 130 staff who will be retrenched, representing 3 percent of manpower at SPH.

    No details of retrenchment in each department was given in the report.

    But the source from SPH has provided a partial breakdown.

    Breakdown of retrenched staff
    The most updated figures suggest staff cuts at ST newsroom are the most severe, with up to 40 employees affected — probably because they have the biggest headcount out of all newsrooms.

    Here are the latest retrenchment numbers:

    • Straits Times: 40
    → includes seven from Life!
    → five sub-editors
    → four at news desk

    • Business Times: 17

    Resentment and confusion
    According to the source, the most baffling move was the retrenchment of a few young reporters.

    The source said the cost of keeping these young reporters is “very, very low” and the cut was perceived to be arbitrary.

    The source also said direct supervisors of the reporters “had absolutely no say” in deciding if the juniors should be kept. And they only found out who on their staff and how many got axed at 9am on Thursday, when the retrenchment exercise began in earnest.

    The collective view is that the new SPH chief executive, Ng Yat Chung, is a big fan of cost-cutting, which will not be good news for the newsroom staff.

    Consolidation of resources
    The source also said there is a consolidation of resources in the various newsrooms to streamline manpower.

    The New Paper sports desk will move to ST in November, and ST money desk will move to BT.

    Mothership.sg understands that Warren Fernandez, editor-in-chief of SPH’s English/Malay/ Tamil Media Group is going to hold another meeting on Friday at 5pm just for ST.

    Photographer who covered townhall event laid off
    Another SPH source said one photographer who took photos of the company-wide townhall meeting on Thursday morning was retrenched after he filed his work.

    However, the source also said the silver lining is that job offers have started to come in for some of those affected.

    There is also a sense of relief for those who did not get cut, but there is no assurance they won’t be next down the road in a few years’ time.

    If you are one of those affected by Singapore Press Holdings retrenchment exercise, do contact us at [email protected] if you wish to share your experience. Your identity will be kept anonymous and any identifiers removed.

    Guys, you think after they are leetrenched by SPH, they won't vote PAP at the next GE? They will.

    Using the words of Boss Sam, these SPH leetrenchies belong to the 69% "gong cheebyes".

    Why can't this Ng Yat Chung retrench everybody at SPH except himself? With automated publishing and printing AI software, this guy can just run SPH all by himself and swallow all the profits. Cut and paste is such an easy job and he couldn't even figure it out? WTF!

    They can thank the government for given them $500 for skills future fund, now they can use that to get a license to drive Hire Cars, & retrain themselves & empower with new skills to tackle the new brave world..

    Writing's on the wall for the nation's prostitute press ... dwindling circulation, mass retrenchments, and now AsiaOne's demise. Even magazines like Her World are struggling, given that many are going online for their lifestyle updates.

    In an age of the Internet, social media and globalization where news travel at the speed of light, state-owned propaganda media are going the way of dinosaurs. The lack of real investigative journalism and scoops,cynical rehashing of second-hand news, biased op-eds, preachy pseudo-analysis of local politics ... all this compounds the credibility deficit that our media suffers from.

    Good riddance, anyway.

    He won't retrench himself, but if he doesn't retrench others, someone will eventually retrench him. :p
