The Unifor union says Vancouver is taking the biggest hit as dozens of Global News jobs are cut across Canada.

Corus Entertainment, which owns Global, is cutting nearly 80 jobs as part of a restructuring plan geared toward boosting online coverage.

Unifor, which represents some Global employees, says 69 of its members who worked as reporters, anchors, camera operators, control room staff, make-up artists and other production crew lost their jobs.

It says 21 employees were laid off in Vancouver, the most of any local operation.
