Newsquest journalists to strike

Submitted by Matthew on 22 June, 2011 - 1:10

National Union of Journalists members working for south London titles of the Newsquest group will join strikes on 30 June as they begin a four-day walkout on 27 June.

Despite the group continuing to make large profits (it made an operating profit of over £70 million in 2009), senior management have decided to make an as-yet unspecified number of editorial staff redundant.

NUJ official Jenny Lennox said “We’ve had a very successful two-day strike … and … a dozen journalists have joined the union since the dispute began. This reflects the deep anger of journalists employed by Newsquest at their bosses’ determination to avoid consulting with staff on the future of their papers.”
