The contract dispute between NHL players and team owners is hurting more than millionaires, the Ottawa Senators president revealed Monday — some full-time staff at the stadium have been laid off as a result.
Team president Cyril Leeder wouldn’t say how many people had been laid off, only noting that it was a “significant number,” and “more than 10.”
Leeder told media some other staff have mored to a four-day work week. The layoffs took effect today.
Ticket sales slowed down over the past couple of weeks once there was talk of a possible lockout, Leeder said.
