Issue No. 2161

Journalists in the NUJ union at Trinity Mirror’s Midlands titles have voted massively in favour of industrial action over compulsory job cuts and paper closures.

There was an 84 percent vote to strike with 97 percent in favour of action short of a strike at the Birmingham Mail, Birmingham Post, Coventry Telegraph, Sunday Mercury and Midlands Weekly Media titles.

NUJ members at Trinity Mirror in Middlesbrough and Newcastle are also balloting for industrial action over the threat of job cuts.
