Express journalists call off strike

Issue No. 2098

Members of the NUJ journalists’ union at Express Newspapers voted on Monday of this week to call off a three day strike set for Tuesday to Thursday.

The chapel (workplace union branch) meetings in London and Broughton, near Preston, voted to accept a deal that will lead to talks on productivity that journalists have been demanding.

They voted to accept a pay rise of 3 percent.

Management has also agreed to discuss bringing work back in-house.

Workers across the Express struck on 4 April.

The Express Newspapers’ journalists had originally voted to reject the 3 percent offer.
