With possible layoffs putting The Associated Press on the top of our layoff watch, employees at the newswire are understandably anxious about losing their jobs. Silicon Alley Insider reports that an AP “Town Hall” meeting will be held next month, and that those concerns will probably be on the top of the list of issues addressed by CEO Tom Curley.
Curley says addressing employees via Q&A sessions are business as usual, but there is obviously one question on most workers’ minds: Will they have a job come Christmas?
Update: AP spokesperson Paul Colford has notified us that the town hall meeting has been scheduled since October 1, and that it’s primary focus will be on “the outcome of the AP’s recent management retreat at Lake Placid.”
Official memo about the conference after the jump.
