The redundancy exercise could be a direct result of a merger between the media entities Radio Jamaica Limited and The Gleaner Company Limited.

The merger, which was approved by shareholders of both companies last December, is supported by various local regulatory authorities, and sanctioned by the Supreme Court in February. The merger has created the largest media entity in Jamaica and among the largest in the English-speaking Caribbean.
