Workers at a publishing company are facing an uncertain future after a downturn in business.
The Herald understand that Harper Collins, who employ a large number of people at their Bishopbriggs base, have recently lost a major publishing contract.
And managers and union chiefs are now in discussions about the ramifications of the loss.
One employee said that a number of short-term and part-time workers had already been told their services are no longer required.
There are also rumours that full-time workers could be facing wage cuts.
