Nearly 150 library and editorial staff jobs are set to be lost at Express Newspapers.
The newspaper group, which publishes the Daily Star, Daily Express and the Sunday Express, has sent out letters to 540 staff across all three titles outlining details of the proposals.
A spokesman for Express Newspapers said the plans were subject to three months consultation and those staff selected for redundancy would then have a further month of individual consultation.
She said the changes were necessary in order to enable Express Newspapers to compete in the 21st Century.
