The Chronicle Herald is making plans to scrap its Sunday print edition, the Halifax-based newspaper's union said on Thursday.
CWA Canada union director Martin O'Hanlon said employees were notified of the plans on Wednesday. He did not have details on the timing of the plans.
"We've got no information that there's going to be any job losses at all, as a result of this," O'Hanlon said in an interview.
"You never know what could happen, especially in the press room because if you cut down one out of seven (editions) you never know what effect that could have."
A spokeswoman for the Chronicle Herald declined to confirm whether the Sunday edition would be halted.
"We do have a lot of exciting changes coming up in the future. We're in the planning stages of some changes that will have a positive impact on all of our platforms."
The Chronicle Herald is the most widely circulated newspaper in the Atlantic provinces and the largest independently-owned newspaper company in Canada.
