Journalists at Newsquest's centre in Swindon have been told that most of the subbing operation is being switched to a new hub at the company's Oxford office.
It is understood that Newsquest wants to reduce the "head count" in its subbing operations in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire by six. There are currently eight subs based in Swindon. Consultations with staff have just started.
Newsquest has already switched most of the subbing operation at The Argus, Brighton, to Southampton.
