VANCOUVER - Glacier Media Inc. (TSX:T.GVC, Stock Forum) is contracting out its ad production at a number of its publications in British Columbia.

Rob Munro, vice-president of the Media Union of B.C., said Thursday the union received noticed earlier this week about 15 jobs being eliminated at the Abbotsford Times, Surrey Now, Burnaby Now, Coquitlam Now and New Westminster Record.

The layoffs are effective as of Dec. 13.

Five non-unionized workers will also be let go from the Kamloops Daily News.
